Touching and Changing Lives
In the last year, The Council trained or provided direct services to more than 29,000 people in our community. In addition, we reached tens of thousands more by
1) providing resources/materials to students, parents and teachers;
2) conducting public awareness campaigns via community events, billboards, public service announcements, and media coverage; and,
3) educating teachers, counselors and parents who pass on their skills and knowledge to countless others.
Thank you for helping us continue to touch and change lives!

Ways to Connect
Substance use disorder—known by many as substance abuse—is our country’s #1 health issue as contended by The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids and other respected national organizations.
In Dallas, the volume of health-related stories involving adolescents and drugs and alcohol is staggering. Yet, we are not helpless. There are ways we can connect. There are mobilization efforts and community coalitions raising their collective voices every single day across all sectors.
There is a tangible return on investment that includes the health, safety and productivity of children, families, and communities throughout many Dallas-area counties.
Please connect with us—we’re on Facebook, Twitter and have a regular newsletter. We’re really social!
And our programs have their own web pages and connections; please check them out here:
