Drug Free Carroll County is a coalition comprised of volunteer members from local organizations and individuals throughout Carroll County. Members hold the common goal of reducing substance use among Carroll County youth. The coalition seeks to create a healthier, drug free community through the implementation of effective prevention strategies. The coalition is committed to providing information and community education, supporting youth led prevention efforts, challenging community norms that might be favorable to youth substance use, decreasing youth access and availability of substances and changing policies that will reduce youth usage of alcohol, tobacco, prescription medication and other drugs.
