Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition

Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition

Our Coalition is committed to raising public awareness of the risks and consequences of underage drinking and drug abuse, educating the community about current and emerging drug trends, partnering with school districts, building liaisons with decision-makers, parents, the medical and faith communities, as well as law enforcement.

We work to develop, implement and support environmental strategies to reduce substance abuse. We believe by working together, citizens can nurture social and environmental changes to make Williamson County a safer and healthier place, brightening the future of our children, youth and families.

Please join us as we work together to change the perception that underage drinking and the use of tobacco and other drugs are just a “rite of passage”.
