In its 10th year, the Drug-Free Community Coalition is comprised of numerous volunteers and community partners throughout Knoxville, representing law enforcement, youth-serving organizations, treatment programs, healthcare facilities, local businesses, the school system and others. Coalition members meet bimonthly to discuss current projects, recommend strategies for community change, network with other substance abuse prevention leaders.
Smaller coalition subcommittees also meet bimonthly to plan for upcoming events and engagement opportunities. The subcommittees include:
- Reducing Access to Alcohol and Prescription Drugs
- Increasing Access to Treatment
- Alternative School Outreach
- Membership Recruitment
- The coalition meets at noon on the fourth Tuesday every other month in the Knox County Health Department’s Community Room. Participation can increase knowledge of substance abuse and the tough issues our young people are facing today.
