Boone County Alliance is a non-profit organization working towards building a healthy community by preventing and reducing drug and substance use among the youth. We work directly with the youth in Boone County and offer sound strategies to reduce drug exposure.
We meet on the third Monday of every month at 09:00 A.M. at the Florence Government Centre, focusing on preventing underage drinking, marijuana use, and prescription drug abuse/misuse.
We focus on implementing effective strategies, building community partnerships, and promoting evidence-based interventions that reduce the incidence of drug use among youth, their families, and those in future generations. We work with schools, parents, and other organizations to spread awareness about the debilitating mental, physical, and emotional effects of drug use and how it can weaken the community.
We collaborate with like-minded organizations with the same values to eradicate substance abuse. We have volunteers from more than ten organizations, including partners from education, law enforcement, youth-serving organizations, healthcare, and religious sectors.
Our ultimate goal is to foster mental wellness among the youth and build a generation free of substance abuse.
