The Anti-Drug Coalition's main focus is prevention for youth in Citrus County.  We use both evidenced-based practices and environmental strategies, as well as community projects too, all by partnering with other agencies and organizations in the community to help us achieve this goal. 

Evidenced-Based Practices:   

Know the Law
The ADC partners with the Citrus County Sheriff's Office who teaches Know the Law to local 7th grade students each year.  With the help of our School Resource Deputies, these middle school students come away with a working knowledge of drug laws and dangers, preparing them for their future.  From a Pre-Survey, to a course that lasts over several weeks, these students learn important information concerning drugs and the consequences.

Teen Town Hall
The ADC utilizes one of the most effective teen interactions by hosting a Teen Town Hall each year.  As this event has grown in participation, it has also become a privilege to be selected to attend this event for students.  Students are selected through a nomination process by teachers, and attend willingly.  Break-out sessions are offered by some of Citrus County's best prevention leaders and advocates, that peek student's interest and help them to engage in meaningful conversation, yielding some interesting feedback.  In 2019, 54 students attended the half-day event, and exchanged ideas about important issues such as substance abuse, mental health, violence, relationships, and other challenges facing youth in Citrus County.

Environmental Strategies include:  Friday Night Done Right, and No Joke as our Social Norming component of Environmental Strategies.
