IMPACT Garland is a community coalition of concerned citizens working together to reduce and prevent youth substance use. The coalition meets monthly to develop drug prevention programs that reduce access to alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. The coalition offers parent resources that raise awareness about signs and symptoms of drug use, and about how adults can educate themselves about underage drinking, tobacco use, prescription drug abuse, and other issues facing our youth.
The coalition works through partnerships with local law enforcement, media campaigns, and strategic policy changes that make the community safer. Programs of IMPACT Garland include Crazy For My Kids and the semi-annual prescription drug take-back.

Talk. They Hear You.
The “Talk. They Hear You.” campaign aims to reduce underage drinking and substance use among youths under the age of 21 by providing parents and caregivers with information and resources they need to address alcohol and other drug use with their children early.
Our IMPACT Communities coalitions are always looking for new members willing to raise awareness around cohesive drug-free prevention messages while taking positive actions and changing social norms. Whether you're a parent, grandparent, member of law enforcement, the faith community or work in the school district, we need your voice to keep the prevention message alive. Our kids deserve it!
