Our vision is to prevent substance abuse and relapse by inspiring and educating people to live with hope, resilience and purpose.

Prevention is a multifaceted approach accomplished through early intervention, education, and positive reinforcement. APC focuses our efforts on students, parents and workplaces / athletics.
