This is an educational program focused on learning healthy alternatives to drugs and alcohol in coping with the stresses of service of the Guard and nurturing of your family.  The information gathered from this project will be used to develop programs to help fellow service members maintain resiliency and positive quality of life in the face of the stress of service. We aim to help you to be always ready, always there.
