The abuse of drugs in Douglas County continues to threaten the lives of our young people and the future of our society.
Burglary, robbery, and violent crime continue to be major problems, and the direct causal relationship between drug use and criminal behavior has been clearly established.
Addiction, injury and loss of life are often the effects of abuse.
The individual, the family unit and all of society are at risk unless we change the prevailing tolerant attitude toward drug use and become committed to the goal of a drug free society.
Drug Use is Life Abuse (DUILA), a support group of the Douglas County Sheriff's Advisory Council, was formed in response to this pressing need.
The organization endeavors to bring together leaders in business, government, education, religion, families, and law enforcement to work together toward changing the way society perceives drug use.
DUILA also provides for purchase drug and alcohol screening kits for parents and employers.
