The Drug Free Coalition was established in September 2014 as a part of the Rockdale Coalition for Children and Families. The Drug-Free Coalition brings together a collaborative effort with the community to reduce youth substance abuse. The Coalition provides information, education, support and the necessary tools to work together to make a difference in the lives of youth and families. We promote factors that increase positive decision making in youth to stay healthy and avoid alcohol and other drugs.

The Goals of the DFC Coalition:

  1. To increase and strengthen community collaboration among Rockdale County’s private nonprofit agencies, businesses, schools and Federal, State, and local governments to support the efforts of our community coalition to prevent and reduce youth substance abuse.
  2. To reduce youth substance abuse by addressing the factors in our community that increase the risk of substance abuse and promoting the factors that minimize the risk of substance abuse

Vision Statement
To make a difference in the lives of children, youth and adults in Rockdale County by promoting a healthy, drug-free, positive environment while supporting all members of the community to be successful in their lives.

Mission Statement
