HOUGHTON LAKE – The Roscommon County Community Foundation (RCCF) is excited to announce that Houghton Lake Community Schools (HLCS) was awarded a $400 grant to complete funding for the Drug Busters Program.
The Drug Busters Program is committed to teaching prevention of drug use amongst students at HLCS. One of the more effective teaching methods of the program are drunk simulation goggles that allow students to experience the impact of alcohol on fine motor skills. In previous years, students have been able to use goggles that were borrowed from the sheriff’s department.
HLCS wished to purchase their own drunk goggles for teaching purposes, but also wanted to invest in a pair of drug goggles as well. Drug goggles would allow students, in a safe setting, to experience a simulation of different drugs and the effects they had on them. These goggles allow students to be affected by drugs like marijuana, LSD, ecstasy and molly.
