A Letter From the Executive Director

For more than 45 years, CDAC has been putting children and families first by providing quality Prevention and Intervention services. Drug and alcohol abuse touches the lives of many individuals and families. Addressing this issue is not simple or easy.

Our mission is to keep our community healthy, productive and safe by providing services and information to prevent abuse and to help those adversely affected by alcohol and drugs. We reach people at home, at school, and in the community. While the job of prevention is never done, we succeed every time a youth makes a healthy decision and we celebrate every time a family is strengthened.

CDAC’s standard of excellence is well known and we are devoted to continual improvement. The positive impact that our dedicated and professional staff has for our community is not only life-changing, but generation changing. With the support of our Board of Directors, who represent a broad spectrum of the community, and our strong relationships with state and local agencies, we look forward to our future of promoting positive and healthy development of children, youth and families.
