Effectiveness of coalitions discussed during UN meeting

In March, representatives from the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) participated in a session of the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) in Vienna, Austria. They highlighted the vital role that community coalitions play in reducing substance abuse and how bringing various community sectors together has yielded real results.

"Research shows that community coalitions were a key contributing factor to the steep decline in substance abuse rates among American youth that occurred over the last eight years," said General Arthur T. Dean, CADCA CEO.
