continued “These problems have a serious negative impact on our quality of life and threaten our health and our safety,” he said.
Mac MacDevitt, Prevention Team community-based prevention coordinator, believes the local substance abuse coalition is needed.
“Adults in our communities need to mobilize and take action on a community level to change the conditions that support substance abuse and insure that our small towns and villages are great places for families and kids,” he said. “Ticonderoga is taking an important step in this positive direction.”
The coalition is open to all community members. For more information contact Malaney at 585- 6265 ext. 12 or Johns at 585-3204.
