We are the Boone County Alliance and our mission is to prevent youth substance abuse in our community. Research shows that early initiation of substance use leads to greater risk for addiction later in life, as well as affects the ability of youth to perform well in school. BCA works to prevent youth substance use through a variety of initiatives, including providing scholarships for servers and bartenders to attend Server Training in Alcohol Regulations (S.T.A.R.), distribution of medicine lock boxes, and community education on the consequences of youth marijuana use.
