Our Mission

Collin County Substance Abuse Program shall provide professional alcohol and drug prevention and intervention services to all Collin County residents. These services shall include assessments, referrals, information, education, and all other related services.

  • Low cost substance abuse evaluations and referrals for adults 
  • Free substance abuse evaluations and referrals for adolescents 
  • Public information and education regarding drug/alcohol trends and impact of substance abuse on our community
  • Substance Abuse Education Classes for adolescents receiving supervision by Collin County Juvenile Probation Department

In 1987 a task force was commissioned to conduct research to study substance abuse or substance related issues in Collin County. A group of 15 Collin County professionals sought out this information and presented their findings to the Collin County Commissioners in the spring of 1988. There proved to be a need for an agency to provide substance abuse information and education to Collin County residents.

In 1990, the Collin County Substance Abuse Program was established and would serve Collin County residents by providing the following:

  • Serve Collin County as a substance abuse resource
  • Provide substance abuse information
  • Community education programs
  • Promote early intervention
  • Advocate for the development of necessary services
  • Provide community organization
  • Promote local public policies aimed at prevention, early intervention, and treatment

The first year Collin County Substance Abuse Program was opened 58 clients were served.

Collin County Substance Abuse Program has provided services to our community for 25 years. This program has served an annual average of 2,500 Collin County residents, schools, community organizations, state agencies and Collin County agencies.

This program will continue to strive for excellence in providing professional substance abuse evaluations, community education, and information to the general public regarding drug trends and prevention services.
