Since 1982, Palm Beach County Substance Awareness Coalition has led the charge in our community in the fight against drug and alcohol abuse.
We’ve accomplished a lot through our prevention strategies. Because of our initiatives, here is some of our impact from just the past few years:
-- More than 54,860 community members were reached through our prevention services.
-- More than 40 new partners have joined our programs, generating more than $275,000 in new resources.
-- 2,750 more high school students were alcohol-free and another 3,195 middle school students were drug-free.
-- 2,600 high school and middle school students chose not to smoke marijuana.
-- More than 1,300 students from 55 schools participated in our annual School Bus Poster Contest, which encouraged students to design anti-drinking posters for school buses and displays at the South Florida Fair.
-- More than 150 youth took part on our annual Youth Summits to learn the leadership skills needed to drive down underage drinking and prevent drug use in their communities.
