Columbia County Connects seeks to create safe, strong, and healthy communities by promoting sound choices and by preventing substance abuse.  

Columbia County is a great place to work, live, and play.  Our community and family traditions can bring us together, but when they involve high risk behavior and substance abuse, they have the potential to tear us apart.

For instance, did you know...
  • Wisconsin ranks #1 in the nation for binge drinking
  • Wisconsin has approximately 252,000 underage youth consume alcohol each year
  • In 2009, an estimated 31 traffic fatalities and 1,529 nonfatal traffic injuries were attributable to driving after underage drinking
*Information gathered from Underage Drinking in Wisconsin: The Facts, Pacific Institute for Research and Development.

Did you know that by modifying some of the ways we celebrate, recreate, work, and play we can all make Columbia County a better place?
