The Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Team (ADAPT) is a coalition of people who care about and work together on substance abuse prevention initiatives throughout Essex County.

This program aims to increase knowledge and awareness related to health, aging, and healthcare. WISE provides older adults (60+) with information and resources to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
