What is a coalition?

A coalition is a diverse group of individuals and/or organizations that come together to work towards a common goal.  Our coalition is comprised of community members and individuals representing various groups and sectors of the community including schools, law enforcement, youth, parents, civic clubs, and much more.

What is prevention?

Prevention is a process that attempts to prevent the onset of substance use and/or limit the development of problems associated with use.  Prevention efforts focus on delaying the age of first substance use, or pushing it back as long as possible.  While there are various risk factors that may put an individual at risk of developing a substance use disorder, there exists an equal amount of protective factors to counter-act them.  We believe in strengthening the many protective factors that exist within our families and community at large.
