The Drug-Free Communities Support Program is the nation’s leading effort to mobilize communities to prevent and reduce substance use among youth. The program was created in 1998 within the White House’s Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), and it now funds over 700 community-based coalitions across the country. These coalitions implement youth-related prevention strategies focused on a wide variety of substances including alcohol, marijuana, prescription drugs, and other drugs.
