The Compact 2020 initiative is a collaborative community drug intervention and education program designed to have direct interactions among all ages, social, faith based and economic groups within all 808 sq. miles of Shelby County Alabama. The Compact has implemented strategies that attack the availability of drugs and drug use through diverse actions and tools that focus on the following: connect and education all ages; prevention; interdiction; promote rehabilitation opportunities; and the enforcement of legal sanctions including all community corrections efforts. As of July 1, 2016 there are seven full partners in the Compact: Shelby County District Attorney’s Office, Shelby County Commission & County Manager, Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, City of Alabaster, City of Pelham, City of Hoover and City of Chelsea. The COMPACT expects other entities to participate in the programs and engagement actions applicable to the strategies. Dialog is underway with the Shelby County Community Health Foundation to be a full partner. Formal collaborations are underway to create an education, prevention, interdiction, and rehabilitation network to focus, identify and attack the availability of drugs and drug use in Shelby County. The abuse of drugs in Shelby County, both prescription and illegal, has increased and is claiming the lives of our residents. The Compact will utilize all available tools and techniques to target the origin of the exchange, support prevention, and assist the users on a path to recovery to prevent loss of life, impact sorrow and unhealthy behavior. The primary goal of the collaborative is to enhance public health and safety throughout county.

It is sad to read about the teens that are suffering. How can we make a difference in their lives?

"On Instagram, there now are more than 2 million posts with the hashtag #kms (kill myself), 554,000 with #hatemyself and 631,663 with #lifesucks. Teens say they also use less obvious hashtags or coded language text to talk about their demons and sense of worthlessness in places parents wouldn’t think to look."

Substance misuse impacts the user and the loved ones.

Addiction Prevention Coalition

Substance misuse impacts the user and the loved ones.

"It’s not uncommon to disagree on ways to handle certain situations with a child. But it can feel like so much more is on the line when your child is using drugs or alcohol and needs support. Disagreements on communication, consequences, financial support, housing or other issues may leave you feeling like you’re not on the same page, and at a loss for how to move forward."

Today is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. And before the day ends, we want to take the opportunity to thank all law enforcement officers for their dedication to serve and protect our communities.

We have received a lot of questions about CBD. Here is what we know from the FDA:

• The FDA has approved only one CBD product, a prescription drug product to treat two rare, severe forms of epilepsy.

• It is currently illegal to market CBD by adding it to a food or labeling it as a dietary supplement.

• The FDA has seen only limited data about CBD safety and these data point to real risks that need to be considered before taking CBD for any reason (TALK TO YOUR PHYSICIAN FIRST).

• Some CBD products are being marketed with unproven medical claims and are of unknown quality.

• The FDA will continue to update the public as it learns more about CBD.

CBD has the potential to harm you, and harm can happen even before you become aware of it.

o CBD can cause liver injury.

o CBD can affect the metabolism of other drugs, causing serious side effects.

o Use of CBD with alcohol or other Central Nervous System depressants increases the risk of sedation and drowsiness, which can lead to injuries.

CBD can cause side effects that you might notice. These side effects should improve when CBD is stopped or when the amount ingested is reduced.

o Changes in alertness, most commonly experienced as somnolence (drowsiness or sleepiness).

o Gastrointestinal distress, most commonly experienced as diarrhea and/or decreased appetite.

o Changes in mood, most commonly experienced as irritability and agitation.

There are many important aspects about CBD that we just don’t know, such as:

o What happens if you take CBD daily for sustained periods of time?

o What is the effect of CBD on the developing brain (such as children who take CBD)?

o What are the effects of CBD on the developing fetus or breastfed newborn?

o How does CBD interact with herbs and botanicals?

o Does CBD cause male reproductive toxicity in humans, as has been reported in studies of animals?

Ultimately, it is recommended that you speak to your primary care physician before experimenting with substances that have not been FDA approved.
