The Taney County ADAPT (Alcohol Drug Abuse Prevention Team) coalition has received a second five-year grant, through the Drug-Free Communities (DFC) Program, to partner with area schools and communities. The coalition’s efforts are to promote, encourage and educate students about the adverse effects of alcohol and prescription drug use. The organization is housed at Branson High School and provides services to all schools in the county. Alaina Williams is the ADAPT project director.
Taney County ADAPT is one of only three drug prevention coalitions in Missouri and among 731 coalitions nationally receiving a grant. Coalition meetings are held the second Friday of each month at Branson High School. Meetings begin at 8:00 a.m.
