By responding to community conditions, DFDC will implement evidenced-based strategies that lead to measured, population-level reductions of substance abuse problems. By increasing awareness of the effects of drug use, strengthening collaboration among community partners, and mobilizing community-wide prevention efforts, it is our hope to become a wholesome outlet and resource for children, teens, and families who seek lives free from the burdens of drug and alcohol abuse.
We want you to know
It is important for the entire community to get on board with our efforts. In order to make the changes we want to see happen, there must be a community-wide effort in changing our county’s environment which is currently conducive to excessive substance abuse. These changes will encompass three areas: our community norms, the availability of substances, and our local regulations (policies).
The coalition has members of the County and City governmental agencies, the Public Health community, local law enforcement, teachers, administrators, student leaders, the faith-based community, parents, and others bringing their resources together to address these problems.
