PC SUBSTANCE FREE - I PLEDGE TODAY & TOMORROW
PC Substance Free is a community-wide collaborative to achieve the result "All youth in Porter County are Substance Free." As a community leader, you may already know that our youth experience higher-than-state-average rates for the use of alcohol, marijuana, ecstacy and other non-prescribed drugs, in addition to rising death rates due to heroin use. Substance abuse not only impacts youth and their families, but it also affects our entire community.
