DFC focuses on alcohol and other drug abuse (AODA) issues of underage drinking, binge drinking, and prescription drug misuse/abuse. DFC seeks to reduce community acceptance of underage drinking, increase awareness of the dangers of early onset alcohol and prescription drug use, and reduce access to these drugs.

One method used to reduce underage drinking is to wristband at festivals throughout the county as well as the Fond du Lac County Fair. This practice helps to ensure our youth do not access alcohol at these events.

DEA Warning about Carfentanil

The law enforcement and first responder community have been repeatedly warned about being very careful when handling opioid based suspected substances.

Medics, Police, and Firefighters, please share this with your colleagues. If you find drugs on a patient, be extremely careful when handling them. A “new” drug is in town called “carfentanil” which is so potent that it landed two first responders in the hospital from inhaling dust while closing a ziplock bag a patient had. Expect people who OD to take 10x more Narcan to start breathing again. The picture by NHPR compares the lethal amounts of heroin, fentanyl, and carfentanil.
