Purpose:

The Dry Society will develop and implement strategies to meet the needs of substance use within our communities. We will you data from the community assessments and other local sources to identify which substances and strategies to focus on to prevent youth substance use and reduce adult substance.

What is The Dry Society?

The Dry Society is a youth substance abuse prevention coalition that is located in and serves Richland County. 
The coalition was established in April of 2020 in response to the Prevention Needs Assessment for the county.

In this assessment we found that availability, accessibility, lack of education, as well as unmet mental health needs are the root causes of our communities substance abuse. 

We are currently focusing on binge drinking, vaping, and meth use.
