Bristol Eliminating Substance Use Together (BEST)
BEST is a Drug-Free Community Coalition that is committed to developing a culture of awareness and sustained action that will promote positive youth development and a healthier community. Our primary focus is on youth substance use prevention. We are in year 4 of funding from the Drug Free Communities Grant by our federal partners at ONDCP and the CDC. The goals of the grant are to increase community/youth collaboration by creating a community coalition and decrease youth substance use rates in Bristol.
