St. Lucie County Sheriff Mascara invites families to get the facts about prescription drug abuse at free two-hour class Saturday, Sept. 17, from 10 a.m. to noon
September is National Recovery Month. Sheriff Ken J. Mascara of St. Lucie County is inviting members of the public to learn more about prescription drug abuse and its dangers by attending a free, two-hour class Saturday, Sept. 17.

"Sheriff's Office detectives who investigate prescription drug abuse will teach the class," Sheriff Mascara said. "They taught this course in February, and the positive response led us to schedule another class Sept. 17."

The class will take place at St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office headquarters, 4700 West Midway Road, Fort Pierce. Here is a link to a locator map:

The class is free, but the Sheriff's Office asks those who plan to attend to call Detective Jennifer Waters Hendriks at 462-3675 before the day of the class.

Here is a link on the St. Lucie County Sheriffs Office website to a brochure with basic information about prescription drug abuse:
