About Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America
Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America is a nonprofit organization that is committed to creating safe, healthy and drug-free communities globally.
Since 1992, CADCA has demonstrated that when all sectors of a community come together, social change happens. CADCA represents over 5,000 community coalitions that involve individuals from key sectors including schools, law enforcement, youth, parents, healthcare, media, and others. We have members in every U.S. state and territory and more than 30 countries around the world. The CADCA coalition model emphasizes the power of community coalitions to prevent substance misuse through collaborative community efforts. We believe that prevention of substance use and misuse before it starts is the most effective and cost-efficient way to reduce substance use and its associated costs.
In addition to supporting our member coalitions by providing resources and materials designed to help our coalitions be effective and sustainable, CADCA also offers customized trainings for coalitions across the world. Through our International Programs, Youth Leadership, and Training teams, we are able to reach and empower thousands of change advocates p...er year. CADCA also offer signature events each year, including the National Leadership Forum, Mid-Year Training Institute, and Drug-Free Kids Campaign Awards Dinner, which help our members network, share ideas, and learn from some of the most influential substance misuse professionals in the world. Help us change the epidemic of substance misuse – the outcomes will change the world.
