Join us in October, Substance Abuse Awareness Month, for the Youth Resiliency Adventure event.

Set your distance target and Walk, Run, or Bike throughout the month to help us raise funds for addiction prevention programming targeting at-risk youth and young adults in our community.

According to www.drugabuse.gov, education and outreach are key to helping youth and the general public understand and break free of drug abuse.

Youth.gov, says that prevention strategies targeting the root of the problem are essential to curb drug use and help people lead healthier lives.

Early intervention helps prevent substance abuse and reduce the negative consequences of addiction before they occur. Together we can end addiction.
