Biography

Who we are:

Morgan County Substance Abuse Council (MCSAC) provides free programming and skills training to people of all ages throughout Morgan County in an effort to reduce the incidence and prevalence of substance misuse by adults and youth. MCSAC recognizes that substance misuse overlaps into many areas of concern. To address these concerns such as mental and emotional wellness, suicide, stress and human trafficking, MCSAC offers education and resources to Morgan County residents throughout the year.

MCSAC is a connecting agency and resource to other organizations within the Morgan County community. We currently work with all four school districts as well as the majority of afterschool programs and athletic programs within Morgan County school systems. Our youth focused programs include LifeSkills, Positive Action, and the Be the Majority! media campaign.

MCSAC is the Local Coordinating Council appointed by the Governor of Indiana. MCSAC also has the honor of awarding grants to local community organizations that are working hard to combat substance misuse in Morgan County. Grants are awarded in three distinct sectors: prevention, treatment, and criminal justice. These funds are collected through Countermeasure Fees that are ordered and collected by the Morgan County court system. Countermeasure fees can be ordered against any person who is charged and found guilty of a drug or alcohol offense. These grants are awarded on a yearly basis and are open to any community organization that works with combatting substance misuse.
