GRAAB Coalition Makes Strides With Grant

Via Cleveland Daily Banner in Ohio

Bradley County’s GRAAB (Going Respectfully Against Addictive Behavior) Coalition recognizes that inhalant and prescription drug abuse are “two of the nation’s fastest-growing substance abuse categories.” The Coalition is making use of a grant from the National Drug Free Committee which “aims to contribute to the expansion of the community effort to reduce, prevent and even eliminate the use of illegal and illicit narcotics, with a special focus on inhalant and prescription drug abuse.” With the help of $125,000 in awarded funding for the year, the GRAAB coalition is putting on a 31-day mixture of community awareness programs on the dangers of addictions.
