The Ela Coalition Against Youth Substance Abuse (“the Coalition”) was formed in August 2010 in response to an increased concern about underage alcohol and drug use in the community. The Coalition, in partnership with the Lake County Health Department and Ela Township, gathered and reviewed national, state, and local data to understand cultural and societal norms, usage trends, and perceptions driving this youth behavior.
