Alliances

Grassroots efforts are vital to changing attitudes about drug and alcohol use, educating individuals about health risks and effectively changing behaviors. Our Alliance Program plays an invaluable role at the local level. Our extraordinary partners tap into local drug use prevention and treatment expertise and bring our campaigns to life in a way that no national organization could accomplish working alone.


The Partnership at Drugfree.org Alliance Program is comprised of state and local government agencies and nonprofit organizations. These partners are the foundation of locally-based education projects. This integrated network is continually finding new ways to do their work and new partners to enlist in their ongoing efforts to address emerging drug threats and to connect the public with local resources. These alliances are further supported by our staff who travel the nation providing technical assistance, supporting media solicitation, acting as spokespersons and striving to make certain that The Partnership at Drugfree.org continues to evolve to better support community needs.
