"Illinois slashes ALL state funding for drug & alcohol abuse treatment in massive cuts program."
Our vision at The Addiction Coalition is to help eliminate alcohol and drug addiction in Central Alabama. We are in a battle for a generation of youth where many are involved in destructive behaviors that reduce their chances of a successful and productive life - on average 1 child in every middle school classroom and over 2 in every high school classroom are using drugs on a daily basis.
To win the battle we must reduce the demand for drug and alcohol (improve prevention efforts); reduce the impact (increase access to help); and reduce the supply (advocate for effective change.)
We just hope and pray that state funding for drug and alcohol abuse treatment isn't cut in the state of Alabama.
