Staying Safe this Halloween
Whether you’re in high school or college, Halloween can be a time full of sweets, treats, costumes, and plenty of seasonal activities. However, this is also a time for parties where drug and alcohol use and abuse are present.
With this holiday being heavily influenced by party culture, the experts at North Georgia Recovery Center are here to share some tips to keep young people safe during this spooky season.
While Halloween presents an opportunity to get creative with elaborate costumes, it’s important to make sure you feel comfortable in your outfit. Not only does this allow you to have more fun and be present during festivities, but it also has other practical benefits. Wear clothes and shoes that you’re comfortable walking and running in as this can help you get out of the way of a car or flee from a potentially dangerous situation.
Share Your Location With Trusted Friends
Whether you’re heading out with friends to celebrate or going to a house party, someone needs to know where you are at all times. Before going to your destination, make sure your group of friends or even your parents have your location on your phone. This can be useful at the end of the night if you get separated or need help in any way.
Don’t Drink and Drive
One of the most important tips to keep in mind this Halloween is that you shouldn’t drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. While this can come with legal implications if caught, it can also lead to potentially fatal car accidents. If you plan on drinking or using drugs on Halloween, be sure to arrange a designated driver or plan to call a cab beforehand.
