For every dollar spent in substance use prevention, up to twenty dollars is saved. (Southwest Prevention Center, 2004) Building a strong, cohesive and caring community not only saves money and prevents substance use disorder (addiction) but also creates a healthy, vibrant and appealing place to grow, work and live. Additional local resources related to prevention can be found at Substance Use Disorder- Prevention.
Drug Awareness Toolkit
The Fayette Prevention Coalition has a drug awareness toolkit. We want to make sure that everyone who would like access to this resource, has it. We also have printed copies if you would like to have one, please email Carri Strunk, Coalition Coordinator at email@example.com.
The mission of CADCA is to strengthen the capacity of community coalitions to create and maintain safe, healthy and drug-free communities globally. This is accomplished by providing technical assistance and training, public policy advocacy, media strategies and marketing programs, training and special events.
