Help prevent Prescription Drug Abuse

Dose of Reality

Unused prescription medications in homes create a public health and safety concern, because they can be accidentally ingested, stolen, misused, and abused.  

Safe use.     Safe storage.     Safe disposal.

Learn how YOU can help prevent Rx abuse and how to dispose of medication safely! Unused or expired medicine should never be flushed or poured down the drain.


Compliance Checks

Reality Check 21 Partnership logoThe Eau Claire City-County Health Department, through the Alliance and Wisconsin Wins, conducts ongoing alcohol and tobacco compliance checks in accordance with Wisconsin law that prohibits the sale of alcoholic beverages and tobacco products to underage people. In collaboration with the Eau Claire Police Department, Alcohol & Tobacco Seller Trainings are also held twice per year. We want to help community businesses achieve zero underage sales!

Life of an Athlete Program

LOA ECC logo 2014 (sm)Life of an Athlete (LOA) was selected by the Alliance based on local data and its proven effectiveness.  The LOA Program created by John Underwood, includes research on the impact of alcohol and marijuana, sports nutrition, recovery, and sleep on athletes.  It also calls special attention to a Stanford University study about the negative impact of alcohol on the teen brain.
LOA is being used in schools across the county.
If you'd like to learn more about how you can help promote LOA in your school contact Rachael Manning.
