ELK COUNTY - Drugs are in the streets, in our communities and even in the work place.
" We don't want people to feel there is a health scare, but people need to educate themselves and be aware of what's happening" said Susan Ford of the Clearfield, Jefferson Drug and Alcohol Commission.
"We know it's a common problem in a rural area as it is anywhere" said Pam Streich the North Central Pennsylvania Regional Planning and Development Commission.
Streich states after seeing residents' interest they decided to plan a drug awareness event on April 16.
