Vision and Value Statements

We believe through our contract provider- and collaborative-partnerships (locally, statewide and nationally), consumers can move towards abstinence with positive life-style changes.

We believe that as stewards of public funds for alcohol, tobacco and other drug prevention, intervention and treatment services, our system needs to continually refine and learn from the behaviors and activities of our consumers and their families – as affected by the disease of alcoholism and other drug addiction.

We believe that a full continuum of care, including prevention, intervention and treatment is only the beginning of the foundation of recovery from the disease of alcoholism and other drug addiction.
