El Dorado High School students get a dose of reality as they tune in to the movie, "Chasing the Dragon". "A lot of kids don't know about the dangers of drugs, and education is one of the best prevention tools we can use to prevent people from abusing drugs and alcohol".

23, Mayor Jayme Stayton signed a proclamation naming October 23-31 as Red Ribbon Week in Daleville.

"It's good to start out young in the community and notice what's going wrong in the community", said Miles.


The days include wearing insane socks to 'sock it to drugs.' The dress up days allow students to engage in activities that remind them to stay drug free. Event organizers say that having celebrations like this are important for the community because it shows how serious drug addictions are.

"We have ongoing programs throughout the year, we have already trained between five and 600 kids in grades starting with fourth grade through eighth grade", said Deb Crawford, Executive Director of Pride Youth Programs.

The city's proclamation states that "cities across our state have been plagued by numerous problems associated with drug and alcohol abuse", and that "it is imperative that visible, unified prevention education efforts by community members be launched to reduce the demand for drugs".
