Q: What is C.A.N.?
A: C.A.N. is a non-profit, proactive, student-run anti-drug and alcohol program that has been set up in our community in order to reward those children who chose to make the right choices about drugs and alcohol by providing fun activities such as Wii, Guitar Hero, Dance Dance Revolution, Pool, Ping Pong, Foosball, and much, much more.
Q: Who can join C.A.N.?
A: Anyone can! Our target age groups are in grades 6-12, but if you are an adult and are interested, we have adult sponsor forms available for you, as well!
Q: Why does C.A.N. want my medical records?
A: C.A.N. merely wants to know if you have ever had a previous infraction with the law because of substance abuse. If you have, it won't be held against you; it is doubtful that we will ever even look at your medical records. This is just a precaution. The only occasion when it would be necessary for us to look at your medical records would be if you are under suspicion of drug and/or alcohol use, and are demanded to be tested for these substances. (This does not apply to C.A.N. Pledges.)
Q: Is it mandatory that I release my medical records to C.A.N.?
A: Absolutely not! C.A.N. would never force you to do something you don't want to do, and this includes releasing your medical records/history to us! However, if you do not wish to do so, you will become merely a C.A.N. pledge, and not a C.A.N. member.
Q: What is the difference between a C.A.N. member and a C.A.N. pledge?
A: A C.A.N. pledge has only signed the pledge to be drug and alcohol free. These people are only capable of free use of the C.A.N. facilities. However, C.A.N. members have gone the extra mile, and taken their application forms to be signed and notarized at any participating local business in order to release their medical records/history to C.A.N.
C.A.N. members have a much larger variety of benefits, including but not limited to: free admittance to all C.A.N.-sponsored events, free admittance to C.A.N. facilities, all special benefits offered by C.A.N. sponsors, ability to be nominated onto the C.A.N. board of officials, as well as the opportunity to be selected in order to be featured in a collectable C.A.N. trading card, etc.
C.A.N. members are considered "Gold Members", which simply means they are allowed to use the special benefits offered by C.A.N. sponsors; these members have gold stars on their I.D. cards, right next to the signature line, so that sponsoring businesses can easily tell who is allowed to use their benefits!
