The Juvenile Judge had 7 teens standing in front of him and all were charged with drug use. He knew he needed to do something--so he did. He created a program where if a high school junior or senior wanted to participate in extracurricular activities (sports, band, school trips, parking, etc.) then they would be drug tested. He brought together every person/organization that would be involved in a drug problem and set them in the school gym facing the bleachers. In walks the juniors and seniors FOR THE NEXT YEAR who were told they had all summer long to "dry up" because when they came back to school in the fall, this program would be enforced. Counseling would be provided after school and transportation home. All records are shredded upon graduation. The STAND organization has gone to to expand the program and achieve national recognition. Not bad for a small upper East Tennessee county that is meeting the drug program head on.
