community coalition development
Mitigating substance abuse from the roots.
Substance abuse is a local problem. Therefore efforts to prevent substance abuse would require more
The coalitions could be activity/event focused coalitions, service/program focused coalitions, community mobilization coalitions or comprehensive community coalitions. Statistics show that community anti-drug coalition helps reduce drug consumption among youths: alcohol 27%, tobacco 32%, marijuana 14%, and prescription drugs 11%.
