Empower youth to be drug and alcohol free by familiarizing yourself with what is going on!

Link Together is working to provide evidence based prevention in Arlington Heights, Buffalo Grove, Mount Prospect, Prospect Heights and Wheeling to make a positive impact in your communities.
Link Together earned a Direct Service Grant through the Illinois Department of Human Services and a second grant through CDC’s Drug Free Communities program. These two grants enable us to provide substance abuse prevention services that are proven to be effective in decreasing teen alcohol and marijuana use. We are proud that we have up to one million dollars in prevention funding to make a positive impact, right here in your neighborhood.
