Who We Are

In 1971, a group of concerned citizens formed a committee with the goal of addressing the serious problem of drug abuse in Escambia County. From this effort emerged the Community Drug and Alcohol Council, Inc.

Today, our offerings reach not only Escambia County, but Santa Rosa, Okaloosa and Walton counties as well. We are a group of well trained and experienced prevention specialists, case managers, teachers and concerned citizens dedicated to preventing the problems of alcohol, tobacco and other drug abuse.

Through our programs, children, parents and families can learn new approaches to problem solving, allowing them to overcome adversity.
