Bringing Awareness to Substance Abuse Issues in our Communities

Formerly Back to BASICs, the coalition underwent a name change in 2021, and is now known as Communities Against Substance Misuse.

The work of the coalition has traditionally focused on the reduction of substance use in our communities, particularly among teens/young adults.  For fiscal year 2022, the coalition members decided that the focus would be coalition capacity rebuilding and rebranding. Through this process we have changed our mission statement and are working on changing our vision statement. Our new mission statement is: Communities working together to address substance use. 

Part of our capacity rebuilding includes increasing the number of community members that take part in our coalition. We welcome the attendance of middle and high school students, and their parents, as well as college students and community members, and hope to see many more of you at our meetings.
