Salem 1st Care, in conjunction with Keith Warzecha, special agent for the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), will hold a community meeting at 6 p.m. April 29 at the Salem High School Gymnasium.
Warzecha will address the problem of drug use among youth in Arkansas by focusing primarily on drug trends in methamphetamine and marijuana use. He will further discuss "club drugs" such as Ecstasy, Ketamine and Gamma Hydroxy Butate (GHB) and explain why youth consider these drugs harmless.
Warzecha has served the DEA for seven years and is assigned to the Little Rock District Office. He conducts drug education as the demand reduction coordinator and addresses audiences including parents, community leaders, children and employees to increase awareness of illegal drug trends and stress the importance of living drug-free.
Warzecha will speak to students at Salem and Viola High Schools on April 30. The April 29 event is free and open to the public. For additional information regarding the presentation, contact the Salem 1st Care Clinic at 870-895-1911.
