Healthy Missoula Youth is a coalition working to prevent the potential harms related to early substance use.
Healthy Missoula Youth is a coalition facilitated by the Missoula Public Health and made up of multiple community partners working to prevent harm related to youth substance use. Our focus is to reduce rates of drinking, marijuana, and tobacco use, as well as other substances among youth.
We envision a thriving Missoula County where individuals and families feel supported by their community and are empowered to make choices that positively impact their health around substances.
Did you know that using substances at an early age can cause changes in the developing brain and increase the likelihood of progressing to addiction?
The good news is that early substance use is NOT inevitable. Evidence-based prevention and early intervention strategies actually work! And YOU can help!
