Capital Region ESD 113 has expanded their model of providing school-based substance abuse treatment and prevention services. High school students may receive services at school during the regular school day. These services have reduced a significant barrier for students receiving treatment. Twice as many students now receive treatment.

Wellspring Community Network invited Capital Region ESD 113 staff to attend their meeting in March 2017 in Long Beach, WA. They presented the ESD staff with an Asset Builder Award, which is granted to individuals or organizations that promote the healthy, positive development of youth.

Coalition Coordinator Vinessa Karnofski presented the award.
