Annual Report

Fiscal Year 2015 was a year of transition for ASAC with both of us coming into our leadership positions midway through the year. We were grateful for the opportunity to step into the roles knowing that were joining an agency with a solid history, deep community relationships and strong positive reputation. For more than three decades the staff and volunteers of ASAC have been dedicated to helping individuals, families, communities, and workplaces be healthy and substance free. Read the full report!
