Founded in 1992 as the Meriden and Wallingford Substance Abuse Council (MAWSAC) the independent, non profit 501(c)3 organization  expanded in 2010 to encompass nine towns in south central CT and was renamed SCCSAC, the South Central CT Substance Abuse Council. The Council belongs to a statewide system of public/private partnerships known as Regional Action Councils (RAC).

RACs are chartered by the CT Legislature to identify local needs and service gaps for substance abuse and other addictive behaviors. Local efforts focus on training and prevention activities and the promotion of collaborative efforts to bring evidence-based, best practice programs to the region.

South Central Connecticut Substance Abuse Council’s mission is to identify local needs related to substance abuse prevention, intervention and treatment and to increase awareness and foster local, inclusive and collaborative solutions to the issues related to substance abuse and addictive behaviors.

SCCSAC Board of Directors

SCCSAC board members represent various businesses, health and human service agencies within the communities served.  These individuals work collaboratively on the board to improve the quality of life in our towns and to address issues related to prevention.
