Executive Summary

Full Report

“We support the Council because increased education and awareness lead to prevention. Equipped with the proper tools, parents and teachers can effectively prevent problems before they start.” Laura Allis Vesely & Ben Vesely

“I became involved with the Council not only because of its programs aimed at preventing and reducing the incidence of alcohol and drug abuse, but also because of the innovative associated programs aimed at targeting issues faced by those whose lives have been affected by alcohol and drug abuse, such as HIV Outreach and HIV Early Intervention.” Monique Alexander

“I’m involved with The Council because my family has been affected by the ravages of alcoholism and substance abuse. I believe the full spectrum of The Council’s programs (i.e. Prevention, Intervention and Promoting Recovery) truly make a difference! It is critical to attack these problems at all stages, all ages. The Council can and DOES make a difference.” Leigh Files

Prevent. Intervene. Promote Recovery.

Join us as together we PREVENT problems with alcohol and other drugs before they occur, INTERVENE when they do and PROMOTE RECOVERY for those who are already addicted.
