The LowCountry Alliance for Healthy Youth emerged from a very tragic automobile accident involving four local teenagers, one of whom died as a result of this accident. And alcohol was a factor in this accident. The LCAHY has worked to bring the different parts of our community together to address substance use and abuse by teens.
The LCAHY participates at area school functions providing information to parents in helping their teen, we have media campaigns in the spring for PROM and GRADUATION, we have had professionals speak in the community about substance use and abuse by teens and talked to civic organizations about the issue and asking them to become involved with us.
We continue to press this issue in our community and trying to influence all of our community to work with us to reduce substance use and abuse by teen. Our youth are our future and we must work together to promote healthy development and positive choices by our youth.
