Lynn has trained over 100,000 professionals and Junior & Senior High School students in the areas of Drug Awareness, Drug Endangered Children, and Meth Lab Hazards, Recognition & Personal Safety.
    • The majority of children, teens, and college students using drugs are not drug addicts, they are simply experimenting. Due to changes in technology, the internet is a place “glamorizing” and promoting drug use. The types of drugs out on the street continue to change; many are sold online, in gas stations and in smoke shops. Many are legal and have devastating consequences. Drugs are being colored and flavored to make them more appealing to our youth as well. By educating parents and school officials, they can become the first line in defense to combating drug use. Knowing how to recognize what the drugs look like, the indicators of someone under the influence and what to do if someone has a substance abuse problem is only the first part of the battle.
