Description

Montgomery County Children Services and ADAMHS are pleased to present “Operation: Street Smart,” a training that provides current and up-to-date information regarding the trends, terminology, paraphernalia, concealment techniques, and physiological effects of narcotics to people who deal with today’s youth on a daily basis.

This program includes examples of current designer street drugs such as XTC, Bath Salts, Huffing, LSD, GHB, K2/Spice, and Khat. Current drug paraphernalia examples are available to depict the ease in camouflaging drug use from adults. A strong emphasis is placed on the physiological effects of the drugs and indicators to look for. So-called “traditional” drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, crack, heroin, and methamphetamine are also covered extensively. A portion of the program also deals with prescription medications, including DXM, due to the easy accessibility in most households.

Presented by Captain Shawn Bain (Ret.) and Sergeant Michael N. Powell (Ret.), of the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, Operation Street Smart was created in 2002 as a way to take community oriented policing to a new level. It is a collaborative effort between D.A.R.E. and the Special Investigations Unit (SIU), which is the Sheriff’s Office undercover narcotics branch.

After this session you will be able to:

  • Identify the most commonly abused drugs.

  • Identify paraphernalia & concealment techniques used by drug abusers.

  • Identify physiological effects of certain drugs along with indicators of use.

Montgomery County Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services (ADAMHS) has approved this training for 3.75 hours of continuing education for licensed Counselors and Social Workers (Provider # RCS111304) and for 3.75 hours of continuing education (Provider # 50-17863) for Chemical Dependency Professionals (Content Area: C1) and Prevention Professionals (P1).
