Just Say Something
conversations about drugs and alcohol


Passion. Experience. Diligence.



Our vision goes back to 1984 when Just Say Something was founded.  We were established to provide programs and services to parents and youth throughout the upstate in order to help fulfill our vision of creating a healthy community where all are enlightened and empowered to reach their full potential.  Visit our “services” page to learn more about the programs and services we provide.

Our mission is to help youth, parents and communities have open, honest, and ongoing conversations about
risky behavior, drugs, and alcohol.

Volunteer Employee
Candy Carlson


Candy is our go-to-person who provides all of us with direction on what we need for programs and where to find it. Whether it is a staff member preparing for a program, a community partner in need of material, or the general public in need of Red Ribbon supplies, Candy  with no hesitation graciously provides and keeps track of the chaos we sometimes produce.  

Candy gets up every morning to go for a several mile walk so she can enjoy this beautiful city we live in.  She also loves to spend time with her children and grandchildren who all love to run and get outside.
