Garland County CARES is a substance abuse prevention coalition that was formed in 2007 by Quapaw House, Inc. and a group of concerned citizens in Garland county. The coalition envisions a community in which substance abuse and its risk factors and consequences are reduced to a minimum. Our purpose is to reduce substance abuse and associated problems in our community by implementing community-wide evidence-based prevention programs and environmental strategies.
Reducing substance abuse in a community is a shared responsibility. Garland County CARES Coalition is comprised of a diverse group of people within the community. CARES is includes community adult and youth volunteers, faculty and staff from various institutions, business leaders, health care providers, elected officials, faith-based leaders, educators, and numerous others who work to address the complex issues of substance abuse.
For more information please contact (501) 623-3525.
Our goal is to make quality alcohol, tobacco, and other drug prevention services available to the community and connect families with appropriate treatment centers, as needed.
