®Building Healthy Communities
"We're trying to change the environment for young people, so they no longer have to grow up in environments where alcohol and drugs are tolerated" - Frances M. Harding, Director SAMHSA Center for Substance Abuse Prevention.
The goal of prevention is to stop substance use before it ever begins. The Drug Free Communities Support (DFC) Program is one of SAMHSA's most successful coalition-building, prevention efforts in this regard. Working collaboratively with the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, SAMHSA is currently funding more than 750 DFC grantees. MentorMe® Drug Testing & Educational Services fully believes this effort works as represented in Our Drug Free Programs.
