HR County Using Grant To Target Underage Drinking

The Hood River County Prevention Department is using a four year national grant under the Sober Truth on Preventing Underage Drinking, or STOP, Act to reduce alcohol use among those age 12 to 20.  The Prevention Department’s Ilea Bouse says they have started by seeking those 18 to 20 to take a three-minute survey on their attitude about alcohol.  The department also plans to use a public service announcement campaign called “Talk…They Can Hear You” to emphasize the importance of parents talking to their kids about the dangers of underage drinking.
