Why we are “Empower Tusc”

We are formerly known as the Tuscarawas County Anti-Drug Coalition.

However, over the years, our focus has grown to include raising awareness around mental and behavioral health issues impacting our community along with substance use education and prevention.

Through our education, awareness, and prevention efforts, we are empowering Tuscarawas County to prevent youth substance abuse, promote mental health wellness, and provide recovery support for individuals battling addiction.
