The Alliance for Wisconsin Youth (AWY) believes that substance use prevention is complex and requires more than a singular strategy or approach.
AWY’s purpose is to enhance and support the capacity of member coalitions in their substance use prevention work. Over 100 coalitions belong to AWY.
AWY is a program of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, Division of Care and Treatment Services. Learn more about the Division of Care and Treatment Services.
The objectives for AWY are to:
- Encourage and empower communities to organize local coalitions.
- Establish and facilitate a statewide network of local coalitions.
- Link local coalitions to information about effective substance use prevention strategies.
