Cayuga County Drug Free Community Coalition has been working hard in Cayuga County since its first business meeting on July 31, 2014. The Cayuga County Drug Free Community Coalition mission is to address substance abuse in Cayuga County and the surrounding area by assessing the scope of the problem, and identifying the risk factors that threaten the individual, the family and the community. This ongoing assessment will serve as the catalyst for developing environmental strategies to implement sustainable, prevention strategies that will reduce and prevent the substance abuse among youth and adults in the local population.
The Coalition is situated to deal with emerging drug trends, such as methamphetamine, prescription drug abuse and synthetic drugs because we have the necessary infrastructure in place to effectively address drug related issues within our communities throughout Cayuga County. Full Coalition meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at Cayuga County Community Mental Health Center. Located at 146 North Street Auburn, NY 13021 from 12(noon) to 1pm. All are welcomed to attend!
The Coalition already fulfills a prominent role within the community and already composed of key leaders and influencers within the County, they have already been modeling in their interior work as well as the community. The Coalitions Chair is Kevin Hares and Project Coordinator is JoLynn Mulholland who may be contacted at:
