Empowering Lives, Transforming Communities

Unite with us in the fight against addiction—empower lives and uplift communities through education, advocacy, and support.

Our Mission

As recorded in the Certificate of Incorporation, the mission statement of this Council identifies the following goals: – to reduce the extent of alcohol and other drug abuse in the Finger Lakes; – to reduce the future incidence of alcoholism and other drug dependence; – and to minimize the harm experienced in society due to the consequences of abuse and dependence. In 2005, the Council received an OASAS grant to add Gambling Prevention Services into the spectrum of services offered.

Our Vision

In 2000, the Staff at a Work Retreat, formulated the Vision Statement, which was accepted and adopted by the Board of Directors, unanimously, at the October 2000 Board of Directors meeting.

“The Council is committed to the increased awareness of health and safety issues regarding alcohol, tobacco and other drug use, abuse and dependency. Our presence in the community is designed to change attitudes, beliefs and behaviors and to promote healthy lifestyles for communities, families and individuals utilizing research-based strategies.”
