Back to School Special
As you get ready for a new school year, remember that with a new year comes new chances for youth to get exposed to alcohol and drugs. The Warren Hills Community Coalition is here to help you feel prepared to confront difficult situations and to answer difficult questions about drugs and alcohol.

This newsletter contains resources and materials for parents, teachers, faith based organizations, businesses and law enforcement.
