    Building Community To Empower Youth To Make Healthy Life Choices.

    25 minute presentation on NARCAN: how to use it, when to use it, etc.  at the January 11th Town of West Point Board Meeting starting at 7 PM.  If you have opioids in your household, have a relative or friend using opioids or just want to know more, come to this meeting for a presentation by Bryan Bilse, LCAT Program Coordinator.

    The current form of the Lodi Community Action Team coalition (LCAT) was started in 2007, as a way to address alcohol use by teens in the Lodi area.  Speared on by the passion and drive of a few of the founding members, the group rallied around a growing problem in the area with teens abusing prescription drugs.  At this point, LCAT partnering with Columbia County Connects, took a serious look at the data collected in the area as well as actual events and started to educate the community on the dangers of risky behaviors and how we can, as a community, create an environment that is safe for our kids.

    In 2011, LCAT received a grant from the White House Office of Drug Free Communities to further the work already being done in the area.  This grant was awarded mainly due to the fact that the Lodi area had a problem with teens using drugs, including alcohol, and that we also had an engaged community that was already working to fix the problem.

    LCAT works with local municipalities, law enforcement, the school district, and other organizations in the area to educate the community, empower our youth and work together to create a healthy environment for our kids.

    Bryan Bilse, Program Coordinator for LCAT will be at the January 11th, 2024 Town of West Point Board Meeting to give a 25 minute presentation on NARCAN: how to use it, when to use it, indications, etc.
