In 2017 Blue Ridge Medical Center, in partnership with Nelson County Social Services, hosted a series of “Community Conversations on Substance Abuse” to address the impact of this issue in our community. Six months later, the attendees of the “Community Conversation” meetings voted to officially form as the Nelson Community Wellness Alliance. In 2019, the Alliance was awarded 501(c)3 status as an independent non-profit organization.

Our mission is to “promote wellness in the Nelson community by developing and implementing strategies to reduce substance use among youth and their families.” Members of the Alliance continue to meet on a monthly basis.  The Nelson Community Wellness Alliance has created an opportunity for the community to come together on a regular basis – sharing data, best practices, and working towards a unified strategy to address substance abuse in Nelson County, Virginia. The response and impact have been outstanding.
