We envision a state in which people of all ages have equitable opportunities to live healthy and meaningful lives free from harmful consequences of substance misuse.

The Alliance supports substance use related policies, programs and services that:

  1. Honor the complex biopsychosocial  nature of substance misuse, unique to every individual.

  2.  Respect the human rights, cultural values, beliefs, autonomy and dignity of all people.

  3.  Are evidence-informed, pragmatic, non-coercive and non-discriminatory.

  4. Are continuously improved with timely and relevant data.

  5.  Are trauma-informed, resilience & recovery oriented.

  6.  Are equally accessible to all.

  7.  Are informed by the wisdom of lived experience.



Our mission is to develop, support, and promote policies, practices, and programs that create positive change and reduce the harmful consequences of substance use and misuse in Texas.


We eagerly seek partners in fulfilling our mission. Become a partner in health and power by participating in our trainings, collaborative programming, coalition building efforts, and board leadership.
