Building Healthy Drug-Free Communities - 5:06
with, Randy Root - Director, Huron Valley Community Coalition
Posted Mar 30, 2017
Research has shown that kids who have conversations with their parents and learn about the dangers of alcohol and drug use are 50% less likely to use alcohol and drugs than those who don't have such conversations. The Huron Valley Coalition is one of 16 throughout Oakland County which share a commitment to building healthy and drug-free communities, particularly for youth. The Coalition believes in the significance of the words "Community Coalition." By bringing together diverse sectors of the community, the Coalition will have a powerful, positive impact on the choices young people make regarding substance use.
