One Week Left to Apply for 2016 CADCA GOT OUTCOMES! Coalition of Excellence Awards

Each year, CADCA offers coalitions this chance to receive national recognition for their contributions to community-level substance abuse outcomes. Sponsored by CADCA’s National Coalition Institute, the GOT OUTCOMES! Coalition of Excellence Awards celebrate coalitions that engage their community in a comprehensive assessment and in-depth problem analysis process identifying local community conditions. These exemplary coalitions selected and implemented a comprehensive set of tailored strategies and interventions to achieve real results.

The 2016 GOT OUTCOMES! deadline for Phase I applications is Aug. 5.

The 2015 Coalition of the Year Award was given to the Hernando County Community Anti-Drug Coalition in Florida for their underage drinking, tobacco, and prescription drug misuse prevention work.

"Through the commitment of our partners who operate at the highest level of professionalism and truly care about Hernando County, we have made great strides,” said Tresa Watson, Executive Director of the coalition. There was a 31 percent decrease in past 30-day alcohol use among 6th through 12th graders between 2010 and 2014 as well as a 41 percent decrease in reported binge drinking. Also, 36 percent fewer 6th through 12th graders report having smoked cigarettes in 2014 as compared to 2010 and past 30-day youth misuse of prescription drugs is steadily declining.
