The Drug Free Communities Coalition is part of a federal effort to reduce youth substance use and abuse of drugs and alcohol. The Coalition represents a number of partnering agencies including schools, healthcare professionals, law enforcement, media, parents, youth, state and local agencies, and civic and volunteer groups.
The Coalition has two main goals:
- Establish and strengthen collaboration among communities, private nonprofit agencies and Federal, State and local governments to support the efforts of community coalitions to prevent and reduce substance abuse among youth
- Reduce substance abuse among youth and, over time, among adults by addressing the factors in a community that increase the risk of substance abuse and promoting the factors that minimize the risk of substance abuse.
