Drug Free Communities

Prevention of Alcohol and Drug Abuse

Picture children safely attending school in a true drug free environment. Picture new community parks that provide families opportunities for recreation. Picture local resources devoted to enhancing the quality of life and not combating illegal drug use. What if YOUR community were drug free? Join us in achieving this goal, and we can picture it together.

We value safety in our communities. We value healthy living and drug free lifestyles. A wealth of resources is devoted toward combating the social and economic problems associated with illegal drug use and abuse. Our focus is on the prevention of alcohol and drug abuse. The success of these prevention efforts will add to our quality of life. We value a drug free community because we believe that we are worth it!
