It takes a team of dedicated volunteers to support the Clinton Substance Abuse Council. We're fortunate to have some of the best dedicating their time, energy, and expertise to our cause.

The Clinton Substance Abuse Council Board and staff believe it is our responsibility to reduce substance abuse in the gateway area through:
-Maintaining a board-based organizational structure that operates autonomously, making decisions based on the local and regional
needs of the communities we service.
-Providing opportunities for the exchange of information and resources across partnering organizations.
