  • Promotes abstinence from alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs in youth.
  • Supports and promotes effective tobacco, alcohol and drug cessation and counseling programs for all individuals.
  • Protects the health and safety of our children, youth, and adults.

To strengthen a generation of youth in Pickens County who are armed with the knowledge, motivation, and support to combat the temptations of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.
