WASA was organized in 1986-1987 in response to concerns about substance abuse problems, both locally and globally.  The ongoing goal of the organization is to educate all members of the Westford community about substance abuse.  A long range goal is to assure that programs are in place which will aid in the prevention and treatment of all forms of substance abuse in the community of Westford.  A Board of Directors, made up of a cross section of the Westford community, manages the affairs of the group.
