We are a community-wide coalition formed in January 2010, comprised of diverse volunteers from at least 12 different sectors working together to prevent youth substance abuse. Sectors include youth, parents, faith, schools, youth serving organizations, law enforcement, business, civic, government, health care, media, and other treatment professionals.
Science shows that drug and alcohol addiction almost always begins in adolescence. The developing teen brain is much more sensitive to the effects of drugs and alcohol. Preventing teen drug and alcohol use is critical to preventing teen and adult abuse. Our main focus areas are:
Reducing youth access to alcohol, Rx drugs and marijuana through social and retail sources.
Changing or modifying community policies and advocating for existing policies that reduce teen use of drugs and alcohol.
Changing the social norms that promote alcohol and drug use as a necessary component of having fun.
