In response to the opioid crisis, RAYSAC is hosting the Elevate Your Vibe Festival to prevent substance abuse among our youth and young adults. This event will promote healthy habits, hobbies, and practices that provide alternatives to substance use and abuse. Together, we hope to connect people to local organizations and individuals who inspire lifestyles driven by healthy interests and options for dealing with pain, anxiety, or boredom.
Elevate Your Vibe Fest will allow you to explore a variety of healthy, local options in one place and find out what works best for you. Maybe you’ll find a new hobby or passion!
