"Working together as one,
to improve a community for all."

Since 2003, the Walton County Prevention Coalition has taken great strides to ensure the safety and health of our community's youth. In a world where new drugs, alcohol and tobacco are easily obtainable, the Coalition works with parents, area leaders and youth to offer prevention. Made up of a group of concerned and involved citizens of Walton County, the WCPC aims to improve and strengthen the community.

Our Mission

Our mission is to reduce substance abuse for youth and families by developing an anti-drug coalition, which will be a cross-section collaboration of community entities.  The coalition is tasked to strengthen efforts among public and private agencies so as to address environmental factors by identifying and maximizing resources and public awareness to reduce substance abuse among youth and families.
