Volunteers from the Cobb Alcohol Taskforce are joining nearly 3,000 substance abuse prevention and treatment specialists and advocates from throughout the country for the 22nd annual National Leadership Forum of the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) in Washington, DC on Feb. 6-9.
CADCA’s National Leadership Forum is the nation's largest training for substance abuse prevention and treatment professionals and researchers. Volunteers will have the opportunity to learn the latest strategies to prevent alcohol, tobacco and other drug use, taskforce volunteers as well as hear from leaders in the field.
“We are so excited to be able to spend a week in our nation’s Capital, learning and honing our prevention skills so our community can be a better place, one that doesn’t suffer from the harms of drug and alcohol abuse,” said Cathy Finck, Cobb Alcohol Taskforce Coordinator.
“We look forward to CADCA’s Capitol Hill Day, where we will share with our Georgia Senators and members of Congress what we’ve accomplished to date with federal grant funds and how we are making progress in preventing underage and youth binge drinking in Cobb County,” Finck said.
CADCA's National Leadership Forum features more than 100 training courses to help community and state leaders prevent and reduce substance abuse and its related problems.
It is the national membership organization representing more than 5,000 coalitions and affiliates working to make America’s communities safe, healthy and drug-free.
