The Substance Abuse Council (SAC) is a 501(c)(3)organization serving the community for over 25 years. Realizing our mission of achieving greater community health through the prevention and reduction of substance abuse is made possible with collaborative partnerships amongst schools, youth and religious organizations, healthcare, government agencies and law enforcement, media, local businesses, community organizations, foundations; parents and youth.

To ensure program effectiveness, SAC staff adhere to the professional competency standards set forth by MCBAP (Michigan Certification Board of Addiction Professionals), utilize the federally recommended Strategic Prevention Framework and best-practice model programs from the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP). Following these guidelines and selecting prevention programs proven to be effective allows the Substance Abuse Council to best utilize available resources and achieve greater community-wide impact.

Our Mission:

Achieving greater community health through the prevention and reduction of substance abuse.
