Who We Are

We are a group of concerned community members, teaming up to prevent substance abuse among youth in East Texas. Together, we represent three coalitions that work across nine counties.

East Texas Substance Abuse Coalition covers Smith County.

Piney Woods Substance Abuse Coalition covers Gregg, Harrison, Marion, and Upshur counties.

Northeast Texas Coalition Against Substance Abuse covers Titus, Morris, Cass, and Camp counties.

Our coalitions operate under Next Step Community Solutions, a Tyler based nonprofit that works to provide substance abuse prevention and education, training and mental health counseling to youth in East Texas.
