Linn County Coalition for Safe & Healthy Communities is a collaborative group of community members and organizations working together to bring substance abuse prevention efforts to light.
The coalition is made up of members of sub-committees working on the specific topics of Tobacco Prevention, Underage Drinking Prevention, Binge Drinking Prevention, Prescription Drug Prevention, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) Prevention, and Marijuana Prevention.
These sub-committees visit schools and organizations to educate the public and raise awareness about the effect drugs, alcohol, and tobacco have on the entire community, as well as offer resources and ideas about how to live a better quality of life.
The coalition meets the 3rd Wednesday of every month at 9:30 am at Ladd Library on Williams Blvd. SW. Members of the community, as well as business leaders, are encouraged to attend.
If you would like more information about how to join the coalition, or if you would like a representative to speak to your group or organization, contact Jeff Meyers, ASAC Certified Prevention Specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 319-390-4611 ext. 188.
