—ie Walmart stocking Koolaid & Crystal Lite in their liquor department during current renovation. Complaints to store received response on 5/11 that it is corporate policy and they will move it after reno is complete June 15. However, after our meeting, received a call from local management saying they decided to be “a store of community action” and were moving it despite corporate policy.

with UAD and other drug info; utilize as much free programming as possible, even repeating Robin Stampʼs Internet safety. Sandy offered SRO officer for breakouts.

has dismissed Dr David Greenberg, the addictionologist, and the psychiatric nurse due to budget issues. Don Goodman continues to be the Detox contact.

Detox, with 4-5 weekly presenting in ER. 3-4 months have passed and H is back again, across the board—teens, adults, equal opportunity. She also noted frequency of dual diagnosis. Federal courts have temporarily suspended the Arnold v Sarn that mandated service for mentally ill so they are being curbed.
