A world of safe, healthy and drug-free communities.
To strengthen the capacity of community coalitions to create and maintain safe, healthy and drug-free communities globally.
Preventing alcohol, tobacco and other drug abuse is no easy task. However, since 1992, CADCA has demonstrated that when all sectors of a community come together —social change happens. CADCA is the premier membership organization representing those working to make their communities safe, healthy and drug-free. We have members in every U.S. state and territory and working in 18 countries around the world. Special programs within CADCA are supporting our returning veterans and their families and training youth leaders to be effective agents of change –all through the coalition model.
As a vehicle for coalition training, technical assistance, evaluation, research and capacity building, CADCA's National Coalition Institute works continually to help America's community anti-drug coalitions get smarter faster. CADCA administers the Institute with a grant through the Drug-Free Communities Support Act.
