Coalitions

When families, schools, and communities come together to solve community problems, children win. TOGETHER! mobilizes people and catalyzes change across systems to serve the needs of the whole child. Our coalition work focuses on research-based approaches to prevent substance abuse and advance youth health, safety and success. We currently facilitate Drug Action Team meetings, a multi-agency coalition focused on substance use prevention.

Device

Thurston County Drug Action Team works to prevent and reduce the harmful effects of substance abuse in our community through education, policy and systems change. We mobilize volunteers and professionals to prevent youth drug abuse and change systems to improve individual and community health. To accomplish this, we host an annual educational conference each spring for prevention and treatment professionals, community volunteers, law enforcement, school staff and others. The 2018 conference was called Healthy Futures (formerly called Substance Abuse: A Community Response.) Planning for the 2019 conference is underway.
