Who are we?

We are a dedicated group of community members that develop strategies, programs, and practices to address alcohol and substance abuse issues in our community.  This effort involves reducing access to substances, preventing high-risk behaviors, promoting community awareness, connecting community resources, and providing education.  The efforts of the Task Force are funded by a Strategic Prevention Framework/State Incentive Grant through the Michigan Office of Drug Control Policy and Kalamazoo Community Mental Health & Substance Abuse Services.


"43% of Michigan Students said they had at least one drink of alcohol on one or more of the past 30 days."

Michigan Youth Risk Behavior Survey, 2007

Who Should Be Involved?

Every community member has something to offer.  In order to fight back against substance abuse, the community needs to work together.  It is our voice, our community, and our opportunity.  Please join us as we continue this very important work.
