Vernon ROCKS Coalition

Vernon ROCKS is a collaboration of community stakeholders, parents, youth and volunteers who focus on preventing the use of drugs and alcohol in Vernon’s youth by promoting protective factors and decreasing risk factors that contribute to substance use.

The Coalition works to raise awareness about substance use and local resources through social media and community outreach, support for law enforcement strategies to reduce access and availability of substances, and community education about substance use and local trends.

The Vernon ROCKS Coalition is funded through a grant from the Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services.
