The Alliance of Coalitions for Healthy Communities formed as an extension of the successful Coalition of Healthy Communities (CHC) network. CHC was founded in 1993 by four local coalition groups seeking to strengthen their existing collaboration through the creation of an umbrella organization. In 2003, CHC members, with the support of Oakland County’s Office of Substance Abuse Services, launched the Alliance of Coalition for Healthy Communities (The Alliance) to begin the next phase in Oakland Prevention.
Today, the Alliance has grown to include 21+ community prevention coalitions serving fifty-five+ local communities and provides Shatter the Stigma: Family & Recovery Support and education groups for anyone affected by addiction.
Reducing Drug Use, One Community at a Time
When it comes to preventing drug and alcohol abuse, there is no one-fits-all approach. It takes local, targeted solutions to address a community’s problems. That’s why, since 1992, Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) has been training local grassroots groups, known as community anti-drug coalitions, in influential community problem-solving strategies, teaching them how to assess their local substance abuse-related problems and develop a comprehensive plan to address them. Today, CADCA is the nation’s leading national drug abuse prevention organization, representing the interests of more than 5,000 community anti-drug coalitions in the country.
