NATIONAL DRUG TAKE BACK DAY RESULTS

TO EVERYONE WHO PURGED THEIR HOMES OF UN-NEEDED AND EXPIRED MEDICATIONS, WE APPLAUD YOU. YOU MAY HAVE JUST HELPED TO SAVE LIVES BY DOING THAT. 

The RADAR Coalition’s vision is for youth in the City of Rensselaer to live substance free. We believe that comprehensive community action is the answer to America's substance use problem, and our coalition is working to raise awareness of underage ATOD (alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs) use and to provide substance abuse prevention and education resources. We invite you to join with us to enhance the quality of life of young people in Rensselaer!
