    The Drug-Free Communities Act of established the DFC Support Program—a federal grant program supporting drug abuse prevention efforts that engage schools, law enforcement, and other sectors of a community. Thus, the implementers of the law are the entirety of the coalition, which, previously mentioned, must comprise of members from twelve different sectors of the community. The Addiction Policy Forum APF advocates for research into the causes and treatment of drug addiction, criminal justice reform, and developing the resources to help families in crisis.

As a result, we consider this recommendation as closed and implemented. Assessing Community Coalitions. The criteria are published in the Federal Register as part of the individual program announcements.

    Drug-Free Communities Act of37 Purpose of the DFC Program The primary purpose of the DFC program is to: Establish and strengthen collaboration among communities, public and private non-profit agencies; as well as federal, state, local, and tribal governments to support the efforts of community coalitions working to prevent and reduce substance use among youth. This position also ascertains that there are lower level employees to which each local DFCA grant community recipient can report to, which is necessary once every month. History books, newspapers, and other sources use the popular name to refer to these laws. My curiosity drove me to then ask how many members are currently in her group, as of late Standards of Conduct Concordia University takes a strong stand on substance abuse and will vigorously enforce its rules regarding alcohol and drugs.

Ochs "saw a spark" and felt that Jessica's talents could be developed at his alma mater. From Princeton on, Nickel has been involved with the issue of drug addiction.

Purpose of the DFC Program The primary purpose of the DFC program is to: Establish and strengthen collaboration among communities, public and private non-profit agencies; as well as federal, state, local, and tribal governments to support the efforts of community coalitions working to prevent and reduce substance use among youth.
