The Underage Drinking Town Hall Meeting is a partnership between the Allegany Council on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse, Inc.(ACASA) and Partners for Prevention in Allegany County(PPAC) along with various agencies within Allegany County to educate the community on the issue of underage drinking. The various agencies that make up the panel may include: the Department of Social Services, Department of Probation, New York State Troopers, local law enforcement agencies, ACASA’s Clinical and Prevention Staff, local elected officials, school representatives, and community members.
Even though the community usually does not hear about it in the media or hear about the issues it causes, alcohol is still the number one drug of choice in Allegany County for youth and adults. The Town Hall Meetings are an opportunity for community members to hear about the issues that local agencies face with the use of alcohol and the impact it has on our local communities. There is also time for community members in attendance to ask questions of the panelists.
