About Us

We are a group of dedicated community members focused on working collaboratively to address and prevent our community’s misuse of substances. We come from all walks of life, experience levels, educational backgrounds and lifestyles. If you are passionate about seeing change in our community then there’s a place for you in our coalition.

We operate under the Drug-Free Communities Grant and we are a member of the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA). Through CADCA our coalition has access to the best evidenced-based strategies, research, and coaching to assist us in meeting our goals.
