C.A.R.E. Coalition

(Community-Addiction-Response-Education)

The Blairstown Coalition was formed out of the need in our area to raise awareness about the addiction epidemic that affects so many lives. Our community has a problem just like so many others in America. Recognizing there’s a problem is always the first step to recovery.

The Coalition consists of members of the community, educators, counselors and law enforcement working together to raise awareness and compassion about the presence, dangers, and negative impact of substance use within Blairstown and our neighboring communities. We are committed to creating a healthy and safe environment by providing education, prevention and support resources for our residents, schools and government agencies.

Recently – with the help of many local volunteers and brave participants, the Coalition created this PSA video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9G2sRfqTvw) about the struggles that victims of addiction and their families have to deal with. The goal was – and is – to begin a much needed conversation that is compassionate and judgement-free and learn how we can provide meaningful support.
