In order to fulfill our mission and vision, we have set goals and follow our social responsibility:
CCAPSA accomplishes its mission through evidenced based enforcement, policy and education initiatives to:
- Limit access to substances of misuse.
- Decrease the ease, ability, and opportunity for youth access to alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs (ATOD).
- Change the culture and context within which decisions about substance use are made.
- Align laws, ordinances and policies with best practices proven to reduce substance misuse.
Provide educational programs, workshops, printed material, and social media communications to educate the community on the impact substance misuse has on our youth and our community.
The Cobb Community Alliance to Prevent Substance Misuse works to engage various organizations and individuals representing the diversity (age, gender, race, culture, faith) and sectors (business, civic, education, faith, government, healthcare, justice, law enforcement, media, non-profit, parents, youth) of Cobb County to assist in strategies that will lead to community level changes throughout Cobb County, including the cities of Acworth, Austell, Kennesaw, Marietta, Powder Springs and Smyrna.
