PUSHBACK DRUGS is a public awareness initiative of the Marathon County Alcohol and Other Drugs Partnership. Our goal is to engage all residents of our community in efforts to reduce drug abuse problems through innovative and proven Prevention, Enforcement and Treatment strategies.
In April 2012, partners from the Marathon County Alcohol & Other Drug Partnership Council, Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) Coalition, Early Years Coalition and the Hunger Coalition in Marathon County came together to create a community-wide campaign called The Real Happy Hour. Within months, this new community collaboration adopted an official logo and mission, “Promoting quality family time together for a healthier community.”
Launched in March 2014, www.TakebackYouth.org was created to meet a very specific growing need – how can parents, spouses, friends, and others intervene to break the cycle of addiction to help their loved one start down the road to recovery. The goal of this site is to be a “one stop shop” to connect those that are concerned about their loved ones alcohol or drug abuse to available local, state, national and online resources.
