The mission of the HCSAC is to collaborate with law enforcement, local governments, service and community organizations, youths, health care professionals, schools, parents, and individuals to take actions which will reduce substance abuse and related social problems among youths and adults.
Our focus is to help coordinate community efforts and provide education and prevention services to the youth and adults of Hood County.
The HCSAC is a coalition of community volunteers dedicated to the prevention of youth and adult substance abuse and supporting treatment services for those who need it. It does not provide direct services to clients.
We work to confront youth substance use by educating our community, mobilizing resources, developing collaborations & advocating for sound public policy.
If we can change people’s knowledge about drugs and alcohol, change their skills in resisting the pressure, and their attitude toward substance use, we can change their behaviors and create a healthier community. That’s what HCSAC is all about!
The Hood County Substance Abuse Council works to create a healthier community by educating about drugs, alcohol, and substance abuse.
