About the Kenosha County Substance Abuse Coalition

Kenosha County Substance Abuse Coalition LogoThe Kenosha County Substance Abuse Coalition (KCSAC) began before the year 2000 with the specific intention of addressing perinatal substance abuse. Over the years, the focus has broadened to the current scope of all people with substance use disorders, but the Coalition maintains a particular interest in improving outcomes for families with children.

In 2021, in recognition that substance use disorders are not caused by one specific substance, the Coalition and the Opioid Task Force merged efforts. Today, the Coalition’s mission is to improve treatment and reduce alcohol and other drug abuse in our community by supporting networking, encouraging education, exploring gaps, and realizing solutions. 

KCSAC is comprised of many local organizations, agencies, and individuals who are all focused on supporting our community.

Membership/Coalition Meetings

Becoming a member of the Coalition is a great way to get involved. The Coalition meets on the second Tuesday, every other month in odd-numbered months, from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. These meetings feature updates from the Coalition, an educational presentation, and a discussion of new business.

There are three levels of membership:

  • Active Members: Attend meetings regularly and are involved in the day-to-day work of the Coalition. They also actively participate in events and other activities organized by the Coalition
  • Supporter Members: Do not attend meetings regularly but are familiar with the work of the Coalition and support its efforts
  • Extended Members: Not fully active in the day-to-day work of the local Coalition but are community leaders who may be contacted occasionally regarding specific prevention issues


You are always welcome to join us at an event or other activity. If being an official member of the Coalition isn’t for you, you can still lend a hand as your schedule allows.
