We All Matter

Together, we can work to prevent substance abuse in Graham County.

Our Mission

A substance abuse prevention community coalition that provides resources, support and education to the community through prevention and intervention to reduce substance abuse witha primary focus on reducing youth substance use!

Who We Are

The Graham County Substance Abuse Coalition began in 2003 as a Cross System Substance Abuse Coalition with 5 members to address Methamphetamine. In 2005, the Coalition changed its name to better reflect their broader prevention efforts and strategies to address underage drinking and prescription drug misuse/abuse.

Coalitions are made up of sectors of a community, in which each group retains its identity but all agree to work together toward the common goal of a safe, healthy and drug-free community. Coalitions have deep connections to the local community and serve as catalysts for reducing local substance abuse rates.

Community coalitions are not prevention programs or traditional human service organizations that provide direct services. Rather they are directed by local residents and sector representatives who have a genuine voice in determining the best strategies to address local problems (CADCA, 2009).
