In 2014, Behavioral Health Services Association of South Carolina Inc., through its Prevention Services Committee, started studying the marijuana issue as more states began legalizing the substance. Adopting the tagline “The Blunt Truth,” the committee quickly evolved its study on legalization to understanding other relevant issues such as medical marijuana; recreational use; decriminalization; marijuana’s impact on youth, businesses, law enforcement, the faith community, etc. The committee soon expanded its membership to include other organizations that have similar interests in studying the current and potential impact of marijuana use on South Carolina. The committee has developed educational documents, held a summit in April, collected data, and is participating in social media activities to help South Carolinians become more educated on the issues surrounding marijuana.

The use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs affects South Carolinians of all ages and from all walks of life. Problems surface in our workplaces, on our highways, in our healthcare system and in the criminal justice system.

Recognizing the need for community-based services, our 33 local providers offer a wide array of prevention, intervention and treatment services. These single and multi-county providers offer services in all 46 counties of South Carolina. Each year, more than 50,000 individuals receive direct intervention and/or treatment services from our agencies. Since its creation in 1973, the system has provided services for more than 1 million South Carolinians.
