OCTOBER 23-31: RED RIBBON WEEK


Help EPIC celebrate by PLANTING THE PROMISE with our YOUTH!

The purpose of Red Ribbon Week is to present a visible commitment to living a safe, healthy, and drug-free life. The campaign is designed to create awareness concerning the problems related to substance abuse and to support the decision to live a healthy, drug-free lifestyle.
EPIC will be handing out free tulip bulbs Saturday, October 30 at the Fall Family Festival from 10 AM-2PM (Longview Public Library).

  • The reality of youth drug use defies all stereotypes. Youth drug use rates are more or less consistently high across all gender, racial and ethnic, income, and geographic boundaries. It is critically important that primary prevention efforts address all young people as well as the adults who influence them.  Being a part of EPIC allows me to be influential  to the quality of life and future of the youth of our community.

Mission Statement


Mobilizing community members and resources to support youth and families in building a safe, healthy, and drug-free lifestyle.

Substance abuse erodes the health and safety of our community. Child abuse and neglect, unemployment, poverty, crime, violence, avoidable medical care, homelessness, and overdoses are some of the devastating effects we have seen in our area. This is why effective prevention services are vital for our community.
