MISSION & VISION
The Mission of the Nelson Community Wellness Alliance is to promote wellness in the Nelson community by developing and implementing strategies to reduce substance use among youth and their families.
Our vision is to create a community that is trauma informed, engaged, and actively working to reduce the stigma associated with addiction, trauma, substance abuse and behavioral health conditions by providing education related to prevention, treatment and recovery.
Education and Outreach.
School and Youth Services.
Local residential and counseling services.
Drug court/alternatives to detention.
We believe that our community is stronger when we work together to improve the lives of those most impacted by substance abuse.
We believe that no one should feel ashamed or embarrassed to seek out treatment for addiction, trauma, or any other medical condition.
We strive to create a community that is resilient and resistant to the impacts of substance abuse.
We strive to promote recovery by providing a variety of locally based resources to individuals and families.
