As part of the statewide methamphetamine awareness campaign, “Meth Changes Everything,” a community meeting will be held in Yankton at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 30, at the Yankton High School Main Theatre.
Prevention providers will speak about meth and the effects it has on communities, and give individuals an opportunity to provide feedback on ideas and solutions on how to combat the issue. The panel will have representatives from the Yankton Police Department, Lewis and Clark Behavioral Health, and the Division of Criminal Investigation.
Meth use in South Dakota is on the rise and it is important for community members to attend. The goal of the campaign is to educate high school students and communities throughout South Dakota on the dangers of meth use and for individuals to take the pledge against meth use.
