Substance Abuse Advisory Board Information

The Substance Abuse Advisory Board consists of up to 12 members appointed by the Spokane County Board of Commissioners. Members are chosen for their demonstrated concern for alcoholism and other drug addiction problems. Members of the Board are representative of the community, and we encourage members of minority groups and people in recovery to participate in our Advisory Board. It is helpful in the review process if applicants identify themselves as people in recovery or as a member of a minority group.

Unless otherwise scheduled, the advisory board meets on the 4th Monday of the month at 4:00 p.m. in the Community Services Building at 312 West 8th Avenue in the 5th floor conference room.

If you are interested in applying to the Substance Abuse Advisory Board, please print the attached application below, complete and sign the document, and mail it to the Board of County Commissioners, 1116 West Broadway Avenue, Spokane, WA 99260, Attention Ginna Vasquez.

Youth Committee

The Advisory Board established the Youth Committee to advise the board regarding local prevention and treatment services pertaining to youth.  The Youth Committee is comprised of local youth, Advisory Board members and County staff.

This year the youth committee members have been working on developing a presentation addressing media literacy, peer pressure, positive norms and other strategies to achieve a healthy life style. These impressive youth leaders are engaging the community in new ways to positively impact their peers and dispel the myth that most youth abuse substances.
