Concerned community members formed the Methamphetamine Task Force in 2002.  The Substance Abuse Coalition of Kanabec County was established in 2006 when community members expanded their mission to also prevent alcohol, tobacco and other drug use.  Many efforts to educate, change policies, and provide help for those in need have been, and continue to occur, through the work of our local community members.

Today we are “Better Together“! Better Together is the new name, broader vision for the Substance Abuse Coalition of Kanabec County. Join us! We need our community involved as we strive to promote an environment of success for the youth in our community.

We promote mental health wellness skills to help keep our youth strong and resilient for a healthy life free from dependence on illegal drugs and alcohol.
