Life throws many surprises at us, and while we cannot predict the outcome of any situation, we can take control of how we respond to certain situations.

Alcohol and Drug Use Education  expands your understanding of what the substances do to your body and mind in unhealthy ways. The education provides you with tools as well as shows you how to use the tools to begin changing your life.

No Matter who you are, you matter.
