WHEREAS, drugs and alcohol have a disproportionate effect on young developing brains;

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Williamson County Commissioners Court proclaim May 9-15, 2021 as National Prevention Week and encourages all youth and adults to participate in prevention activities and to seek and adopt positive behaviors that promote healthy choices;

AND FURTHER RESOLVE, to urge everyone to fight the stigma and discrimination faced by those loved ones facing the long journey of recovery and seek

organizations, like LifeSteps, to assist with not just the first step, but the many steps that come afterward.
