Independence High School (IHS) is excited to announce that we are starting a local IHS chapter of Drug Free Clubs of America (DFCA). The program relies on the community to help us reach out to every type of student. After completing a voluntary, confidential drug test, drug free students receive a photo ID “Club Card,” recognizing them as members. Members use their club cards at school and participating businesses to receive rewards tailor made for Drug Free Clubs of America.
Re-testing of random members occurs periodically throughout the school year. Participants keep their privileges and continue getting rewarded as long as they test drug free at any given time.
Random tests EMPOWER members to say “I Can’t, I could get tested.”
When a member tells a friend “I Can’t,” the friend knows that to be true because the member has been seen getting rewards. Peer pressure is stopped in its tracks, and the member escapes a tough situation drug-free!
Benefits for All!
Communities – Reduced drug use results in decreased crime and a more reliable youth. Businesses prosper by showing patrons that they are community leaders, vested in the next generation.
Schools – Drug abuse has been proven to interfere with a student’s ability to learn. Statistically, students who use drugs are more likely to bring violent behavior into the schools, disrupt a healthy learning atmosphere, and/or drop out completely. We provide the means for schools to create a safer learning environment.
Parents – Enjoy the priceless peace of mind knowing their child is drug free, and has been given a foolproof tool to stay that way.
Students – By becoming a member of Drug Free Clubs of America, students will be eligible for countless rewards. This includes the long-term rewards associated with a drug free adolescence such as a reduced likelihood of adulthood addiction, better realization of goals, and a more promising future.
