    When it comes to substance use, choice matters - our choices as individuals and our choices as a society. Whether it be a young person standing at a party being offered alcohol for the first time, or a person in active addiction deciding now is the time to take steps toward recovery, their choices will impact their lives and the lives of those around them.

    The Cape Cod community is united in its choice to address the substance use issue. Coming together to guide our children, promote self-empowerment and support our neighbors in their journey from addiction to recovery is the path we have chosen.

    We are united in our efforts to empower each citizen to believe that “My Choice Matters."
