Robertson County Grant to Help with Substance Abuse Prevention

By  | 

Robertson County will get $150,000 over the next two years, thanks to a grant from the Community Action Partnership for Prevention and the Brazos Valley Council on Alcohol and Substance Abuse.

The money will go to training the community in recognizing problems associated with drugs and alcohol.

"Methamphetamine use is pretty common here," Assistant District Attorney Linda Stutt said. "With these growing and manufacturing operations, you need a place where you can hide. A rural area like this is a good place for those to crop up."
