To make Blair County a drug-free community, the coalition will work to:
• Reduce substance abuse among youth and, over time, among adults by addressing the factors in the community that increase the risk of substance abuse and promoting the factors that minimize the risk of substance abuse. (Substances include, but are not limited to narcotics, depressants, stimulants, hallucinogens, cannabis, inhalants, alcohol and tobacco, where their use is prohibited by Federal, State or local law.)
• Establish and strengthen collaboration among communities, private nonprofit agencies, Federal, State, local and tribal governments to support the efforts of community coalitions to prevent and reduce substance abuse among youth.
• Educate the community about risk and protective factors that impact alcohol and other drug use.
