Representatives from Elgin, IL, are headed to the Washington, D.C., area to join approximately 3,000 substance abuse prevention specialists and advocates from throughout the country for the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America’s (CADCA’s) 28th Annual National Leadership Forum.
“We are so excited to be able to spend several days with other similar organizations from across the country, learning and honing our prevention skills so our community can be a better place, one that doesn’t suffer from the harms of drug and alcohol abuse,” says Coalition For A Safe and Healthy Elgin (CSHE) Coordinator Gil Feliciano. “We plan to come back re-energized with new strategies under our belt to tackle drug use in Elgin and throughout the community.”
CADCA’s Forum will cover a wide range of topics – everything from how to prevent prescription drug abuse and the abuse of synthetic drugs and marijuana to how to create tobacco-free environments and develop policies to reduce underage drinking. Read more . . .
