The Somers substance abuse council provides educational and preventive education on alcohol and drugs. We have information available at the library, town hall and the schools. Additionally, here on our website we have resources for the community to utilize. We currently have openings on the council for residents of Somers to join. We encourage parents, educators and those wanting to help our council to be in touch with the council secretary or the Supervisor's Office for more information on how to join this council.
There is an increase in the use of opiates, narcotics, prescription medications, cocaine and heroin according to educators and substance abuse counselors among adolescents and young adults. This website will give you tips on what to look for if you suspect someone may be using drugs. Communication is key with your family members on prevention and education on the negative effect drugs can have in one's life.
We have student assistance counselors in the middle and high school to contact as resources even if you do not have children in these particular schools.
