Capitol Advocacy

Being involved with the lawmaking process is a crucial step in preventing drug and alcohol abuse.  Research over the last two decades has proven that drug and alcohol addiction is both preventable and treatable. Therefore, prevention strategies must be a critical component for any comprehensive national strategy to address drug use and underage drinking.  Whether it is at the national level, or in your own local community; it’s critical to get involved!
