Programs Overview

The Coalition has a variety of programs aimed at reducing substance abuse among youth and, over time, among adults.

The programs are designed to address the factors in a community that increase the risk of substance abuse and promote the factors the minimize the risk of substance abuse.

The Coalition also implements programs to promote a cooperative approach to prevention that results in a consistent strategy and message about alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. This will insure, for example, that kids are not getting conflicting messages about alcohol from their coaches, DARE Officers, teachers, and parents.

The Coalition has accomplished this by undertaking initiatives with its partners in the community. Activities and programs undertaken by the Coalition include creating radio ads, presentations in Dover schools on underage drinking, tobacco compliance checks in local stores, reviewing policies on substance violations in Dover schools, sponsoring programs that raise awareness of drug issues.
