The Morgan County Substance Abuse Council (MCSAC) exists to reduce the incidence of substance abuse and their related costs, pain and suffering, and consequences through mobilization and education of the community.
Starting Friday July 28th- August 5th , come see us at the Morgan County Fair!

Teens can receive a Join the Majority! shirt (while supplies last) for taking a brief survey and we have other items for parents and other adults!
See you at the Fair and Festival as summer winds down!
MCSAC currently has prevention initiatives that are intended to prevent substance abuse among our community members: LifeSkills,SPORT Prevention Plus Wellness, Strengthening Families, and Team Awareness..
Talk. They hear you. is a national campaign encouraging parents to start talking to their children as early as 9 years old and to keep talking. Research shows that parents are the greatest influence in their child's decision to choose not to use drugs or alcohol. Visit http://www.samhsa.gov/underage-drinking/parent-resources for a variety of resources to help start the conversation.
Join the Majority! is our youth led media campaign. This is a positive norms campaign that aims to change the perception among teens that everybody is doing drugs and drinking alcohol. The majority of Morgan County teens choose not to drink alcohol or do drugs. So make the positive choice and Join the Majority! Visit our teen page to view the most recent public service announcement and look for more in the near future.
