US Attorney, FBI Special Agent in Charge, and Indiana DEA Director visit Austin and Scottsburg High Schools
Thanks to Josh Minkler, US Attorney for the Southern District of Indiana, for hosting and sponsoring a viewing of the film “Chasing the Dragon” at both SHS and AHS yesterday. Also, students heard from speakers from our community: Tony Amick, Evan Hutchinson, Chancela Key, and Brent Calloway.
Scott County school adminsitrators realize the importance of substance abuse prevention and education among our students and both School Superintendent’s Robert Anderson and Marc Slaton, along with Principals Ryan Herald and Ric Manns, welcomed the drug prevention programs that the US Attorney’s Office, Indiana DEA, and Indiana FBI brought to their schools.
Also, a special thanks to Tim Horty of the US Attorney’s Office, Jason Mount, the Scott County Prosecuting Attorney, and Lori Croasdell CEASe Coordinator, for coordinating this event with both Scott County School Districts.
“Chasing the Dragon” illustrates the dangers of heroin addiction. It can be viewed for free on the link below:

It is the hope of CEASe and Scott County EMS to get as many Scott County lay people trained in naloxone administration as possible. Naloxone is an opioid reversal treatment administered after someone has overdosed from either injecting or orally taking prescription opioids or heroin.
To register, call Scott Co. EMS (812) 754-0500, ext. 21 or register online at www.scottcountyems.com
