Why we're so concerned
about youth substance abuse:
Some reasons for concern are obvious, like the dangers of drunk driving and the long-term effects of smoking. Other issues are not common knowledge and more dangerous than one might think.

It is our goal to make sure everyone in our community has the information needed to make safer decisions regarding alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.
