Keeping our Teens Drug and Alcohol Free

Community – The Anti- Drug

KEEPING OUR TEENS DRUG AND ALCOHOL FREE.

Mission

The mission of Community – The Anti-Drug Coalition (CTAD) is to reduce the use of alcohol, marijuana, and other drugs among youth in Bannockburn, Deerfield, Highland Park, Highwood and Riverwoods.

The Coalition is a volunteer-led organization which strives to build and sustain a safe and healthy community in which our youth feel protected, confident and empowered to make drug-free choices. We bring together input and contributions from all sectors of the community—schools, parents, youth, government, healthcare, faith, law enforcement, youth-serving organizations and more—to transform the environment around our youth so that the drug-free choice is the easy choice. We regularly identify and implement best practices, strategies and solutions that are proven to be effective in accomplishing our mission.

TAKE ACTION

Be Prepared
