“In the last year, we’ve seen a drop in alcohol use, prescription drug use, and opioid use,” she says. And she cites the huge impact of the QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) suicide prevention training, taken by teachers, administrators, and students, organized by PiC and Human Services staff. “It’s a tremendous team,” she says.
REACT has given Kim’s kids, and countless other Clinton kids, priceless opportunities for both fun and learning. They’ve volunteered at holiday events like Christmas in Clinton and Haunted Hallways, learned about substance use and awareness, supported their peers, and attended leadership conferences.
“We are so fortunate to have resources like PiC and REACT in Clinton,” says Kim. “I strongly recommend them to every parent.”
