Be "In the Know" - Because what you don't know CAN hurt you!

The mission of DrugFree Greenville is to increase awareness of substance abuse; to encourage an environment that will not tolerate a diminished quality of life due to substance abuse; and to serve as a catalyst for community partnerships working toward this end.

To accomplish our goals, DrugFree Greenville relies on the support and participation of people like YOU. How YOUR support helps DrugFree Greenville.
