Bret Brooks offers guide on drug abuse

Posted on June 3, 2013

A new book by consultant Bret E. Brooks gives details on the warning signs of drug abuse, paraphernalia usage and drug-related violence.

"Drug Abuse Awareness: The Authoritative Parent and Teacher's Guide" is designed to be a quick reference guide with details on the most abused drugs in today's society.

"This book is a must-have for parents, teachers, administrators and staff," Brooks said. "Anyone that has children or works around children will find the information in the book to be very useful."

Brooks is a senior instructor and consultant with the private firm Gray Ram Tactical LLC, where he teaches school bus drivers, teachers and administrators. He has written articles for SBF and has spoken at school bus industry events.

The new book is based on various government documents and Gray Ram Tactical presentations. It is available here.
