Coalition History:

The Council began as the Pinal County Methamphetamine Abuse Coalition on September 22, 2006 as part of a state-wide effort to help communities combat methamphetamine abuse.  In 2011 it underwent a transformation into the Pinal County Substance Abuse Council, in order to broaden the scope of work to include underage drinking and other drug abuse.


Through collaboration with key community stakeholders, the Council works to reduce substance abuse across Pinal County through policy development, prevention, and education.
