Message From Our Executive DirectorIt is my great honor and privilege to serve as the Executive Director for the San Antonio Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse. I passionately believe in the great work this organization has provided our community for over 53 years, and I’m excited about the new opportunities we have in bringing hope and healing through prevention and intervention services.
We know that substance abuse is one of the leading problems that impacts San Antonio. It is a significant factor in broken homes, domestic violence, child abuse, health problems, soaring medical costs, crime, DWI fatalities, unplanned pregnancies, school performance problems, truancy, high dropout rates, loss of productivity and many workplace issues. Its effects reach far beyond the user- to family, friends, the workplace, and the entire community.
Collaboration with other organizations and agencies is crucial in preventing substance abuse and addiction. Working with our many partners, we are making our community safe and healthier. By utilizing community assessments and implementing evidence based strategies, we will be able to monitor our success and be strategic in all the work we do.
I’m extremely grateful to our Board of Directors, Staff and Community Partners for their unwavering support of the San Antonio Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse. Together, we’re reducing the impact of substance abuse and addiction.
