Westmoreland County Veterans Conference 2022

NW PA Counties graphicThe Northwest Pennsylvania (NW PA) Veteran Suicide Prevention Program operates on a three-pronged approach involving healthcare providers, community organizations, and Veterans and their families in the 15 counties of NW PA. Because of this focus, we’d like to provide information about an in-person conference sponsored by the Westmoreland Drug and Alcohol Commission (WeDAC). This full-day event offers individual speakers, a panel discussion, and an opportunity to speak with local officials and healthcare representatives working to improve Veteran health and wellness.

About the WeDAC:  WeDAC is a private, non-profit located in Monessen, PA. The organization’s mission is to enhance the quality of life for persons who have experienced problems related to their use or abuse of alcohol and/or drugs. WeDAC works to assure clients receive the appropriate level of alcohol/drug treatment and eliminate financial impediments to treatment and supportive services.
