Why Join Jones County Safe and Healthy Youth Coalition?
Youth substance use can lead to substance use disorders
Substance use can be at the core of other problems like domestic violence, increasing health care costs, lack of educational achievement and lower economic productivity
Some youth do not understand the risks associated with substance use
Substance use disorders are preventable and treatable
