People in the community are free from the harmful effects of drugs or harmful substances.

Why Is This Important?

In the 2018 Community Health Needs Assessment Drug Use and Abuse was identified as the second highest priority based on survey results, primary and secondary data, and focus group input.   Drugs impact people of all ages through primary use which affects the brain, behaviors, relationships and functioning, housing access, and more to an individual.   Even if in recovery, remaining effects of usage may remain that impact ability to find housing, a job, or to find positive community support systems.   Secondary impacts include negative impacts on children and families, job/work loss, incarceration rates, health care costs and more (all of which affect taxes which are needed to raise funds to support programs that mitigate effects).
