Combating local substance abuse starts with the community

Since 2010, BCA has devoted its energy to develop and implement individual and community strategies to reduce youth substance abuse in Boone County. Find out how you can contribute to the future of our young people by participating in the BCA's prevention and advocacy efforts.

Join Our Cause

Work with other BCA members to prevent youth substance abuse and make a difference.


BCA meets at 9:00 AM on the third Monday of every month at the Florence Government Center. BCA focuses on prevention of underage drinking, marijuana use, and prescription drug misuse/abuse.


Locally, BCA is a vocal agent for substance use prevention. We promote evidence-based interventions that are proven to reduce the incidence of drug use in youth.


In order to achieve its mission of an united community where all youth are drug free, BCA engages with a variety of partners from education, law enforcement, youth serving organizations, healthcare, and religious sectors.
