In January, RSC staff attended Prevention Day at the State Capitol to discuss prevention with our local legislators (top image). Staff from the Regional Support Center also visited D.C. to attend CADCA's 27th Annual Leadership Forum. While there, we met with Legislators on Capitol Hill to provide information about substance misuse in Missouri (bottom image).
