CADCA has been working on establishing anti-drug community coalitions in the Republic of the Philippines since 2012. CADCA’s trainings in the Philippines have led to the building and strengthening of capacity of local communities. The result has been a highly active response from key community stakeholders to work comprehensively toward addressing illicit drug problems.
To date, a total of 27 anti-drug community coalitions have been organized and are in existence throughout the Philippines. As a result of this effort, an umbrella organization composed of CADCA-trained coordinators from all 27 community coalitions have formed the Association of Anti-Drug Abuse Coalitions of the Philippines Incorporated or AADAC PHIL Inc.
