In 2021, the Substance Abuse Coalition of Kanabec County (SACK) changed its name to the Better Together Coalition of Kanabec County. While continuing to promote substance use prevention the coalition will also work to address mental health/wellness, resiliency, and recovery.
Changing the coalitions name means we can encompass a broader vision to promote mental wellness, resiliency, substance use prevention, and recovery. There is not a linear approach to prevention and building a healthy community takes time, resources, and commitment. We are proud of the work we have done and the collaborative partnerships we have built. We know we our communities are better when we come together and now our name matches our mission.
The mission of the Substance Abuse Coalition of Kanabec County is to “Promote community health through positive choices.”
“Building positive community partnerships and improving community health through awareness, education and substance use prevention.
