Welcome to YSUP Rowan

LOCAL NEEDS REQUIRE LOCAL SOLUTIONS

We have already rolled up our sleeves and begun the hard work of battling this crisis. YSUP Rowan is a community anti-drug coalition formed in late 2015 to address adolescent substance use and abuse in Rowan County. Thanks to the hard work of the 15 initial coalition members, YSUP Rowan was awarded a five-year Drug-Free Communities (DFC) federal grant in October 2017.
