The Coalition was established in 1984. We are supported by dedicated volunteers, local businesses, community leaders, Faith Based Organizations, school officials, and members of Law Enforcement.
We are partnered with several agencies such as SAAD (Saints Against Destructive Decisions), in the West Feliciana Middle and High Schools, MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving), Capital Region Transportation Safety Coalition, Destination Zero, Safety Place, who are integral parts of our program.
We have been supporting the DEA's Prescription Drug Take Back events and have acquired two receptacles for drop offs. This was Sponsored by the Louisiana Department of Health, Office of Behavioral Health's Partnership for Success Grant.
Age appropriate alcohol and drug education programs, speakers and information are offered throughout the year.
Our mission is to educate and inform children and families in our community about the dangers of drug and alcohol use and the importance of making good choices. We feel prevention is the key to this success!
We encourage everyone to join our team in the fight against drug and alcohol abuse.
WHAT WE KNOW
Parents and other adults have the greatest influence on the lives of young people. It is the duty of every adult to ensure that our children grow up to be happy, productive, drug-free adults themselves. Parents should do all they can to create an environment where young people steer clear of dangerous drugs and illegal situations.
The teenage brain goes through enormous changes and alcohol can seriously damage the growth process. Damage from alcohol at this time can be irreversible.
Let's Make Prevention of Drug & Alcohol Use Our Number One Priority.
In Our Homes, In Our Schools and In Our Community.
