Please help us collect some data about Gambling in Washington County.
Washington Drug and Alcohol Commission, Inc. (WDAC) is assessing the extent of “problem gambling” in Washington County to develop strategies that might be effective in addressing this hidden problem in our community. We would like to have as many people as possible complete this short survey about gambling related activity. Your response to the survey is totally anonymous and will be combined with a large number of other responses to provide us with a picture of the overall types of gambling activity in Washington County.

The Prevention department is in the process of presenting the Prom Promise to the local high schools. Asking students to sign a pledge to behave responsibly before, during and after the Prom and committing to an alcohol and drug free prom night. The students have been educated on the dangers associated with alcohol and drug use to help them make informed decisions and we are happy that so many have committed to have an alcohol and drug free prom. Here a picture of one of the first schools that was able to do the Prom Promise Pledge, we look forward to posting more photos in the coming weeks.
