What difference do we make in the lives of kids and teens in the 19 counties we serve? Are their families and communities better off?

impact-word-art01Are seeds planted, waiting to grow stronger in younger siblings and eventually, a new generation?

How do we help the folks who call our substance use disorder helpline? When one of our staff respectfully engages with a caller, how do we know we’re effective?

How can you know that we’re making a difference?

The answer is in the stories. People tell us how their lives have changed, how they’ve taken positive action after working with us.

We’re proud of our impact. Whether the situation involves gateway drug prevention, intervening in the lives of high-risk youth, handling HIV outreach or case management, or taking calls on the helpline, we’re there.

The Council is a moving, thriving force . . . and we could share hundreds of success stories, but instead we’ll share some common themes that emerged from the stories.

“I have seen how alcoholism and drug addictions destroy individuals and families. The Council creates an awareness, provides education, and offers resources which aid in the prevention, intervention and recovery of these illnesses. Drug prevention saves lives, reduces social costs, and we all benefit. It’s a win-win.” John Mogk, CFP

“I support the Council because of its impact informing the public on the dangers of alcohol and other drugs in the community. Because of the Council’s efforts, I am seeing an increasing awareness among teens, young adults and adults regarding the educational and social consequences of alcohol and drug abuse. Let’s ensure the prevention message gets out to everyone!!” Sylvia Hubbard
