You can help shape the legislative landscape for substance use prevention by partnering with ASAP of Anderson. ASAP, similar to many coalitions across the county, is uniquely positioned to both identify needed changes in community practice and be part of bringing those changes to life. These changes can take many forms: conducting policy research, identifying needed resources and assets, ensuring community voices are heard in local decision-making processes, and supporting effective policy implementation and enforcement. Local, state, and federal policies impact our communities; these policies both shape the risks for substance misuse and can include preventative measures to negate it.
