Local Volunteers. Committed to our Community.
We are a group of committed volunteers working together to create healthy changes for youth and families in our community. We work in schools, businesses, community agencies, health organizations, government, media, behavioral health treatment, civic/volunteer organizations, law enforcement, and religious organizations. We are students and parents. We all have a voice at the table. We give the community the education and tools needed to prevent substance abuse. Together, we will create and sustain a safe and healthy community.

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.
I became a member of EPIC to pursue the goal of healthy children, ready to learn, in a safe school, with the objective that all child-serving organizations and agencies collaborate to ensure every child in need has access to and engagement in integrated substance use disorder and behavioral health services.
