The Power of a Coalition.
- A community coalition with active participation, armed with facts and sharing a common voice can fundamentally change the outcomes for our youth!
- We are a community dedicated to reducing youth substance use and abuse and supporting the wellness of our kids.
- Our vision is to have a community in which our residents, and particularly our youth, make healthy choices and avoid misusing or abusing drugs and alcohol.
- Multi-sector community-based coalitions have been shown effective in preventing and treating substance misuse and substance use disorders.
- Coalitions can work to change community-level risk and protective factors and achieve community- wide reductions in substance use by implementing proven prevention strategies.
