Southern Oregon Drug Awareness (SODA): Community and School Working Together to Fight Drug Abuse.
Johnson, Virginia Shaumleffel
OSSC Bulletin, v26 n1 Sep 1982
Southern Oregon Drug Awareness (SODA) is a group of volunteers headquartered in Medford (Oregon) who work in cooperation with schools and other community agencies to reduce drug problems and other human relations problems among children and adults in Oregon's Jackson County through education, encouragement, and referral to social agencies. This report first describes the origins of SODA as an attempt to create a supportive organization for maintaining the local anti-drug movement sparked by the visit of David Toma, a nationally prominent drug abuse lecturer, in October of 1981. The six subcommittees forming SODA are identified next, and the accomplishments highlighted. These subcommittees work in the areas of business and industry, law enforcement, community information, parent education, the school curriculum, and youth development. The future plans of SODA are outlined in the last segment of the report. Appendixes present the original long-term goals, purposes, and objectives of SODA and its subcommittees, and a list of films on drug and alcohol abuse reviewed and recommended by the subcommittee on parent education.
