The Coalition works together to address community issues by leveraging resources and building on the group’s collective strengths to influence the environment as it relates to underage drinking, prescription medication misuse across the lifespan, reducing the use of illegal substances with a special focus on opioids among young adults 18-25 years of age, and reducing the use of new and emerging drugs of abuse across the lifespan.
Monthly meetings provide an opportunity for members to network, participate in relevant training seminars, review The Center’s Community Assessment on Youth, and plan collaborative initiatives to address the needs the BCPC establishes as its focus. Membership is open to those who are interested in creating a healthy, safe and drug-free Bergen County, including youth and young adults.
General Membership Meetings are held on the third Thursday of every month from 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. at The Center for Alcohol and Drug Resources, 22-08 Route 208 South, Fair Lawn. For more information or to become a member, contact Mike Silverman at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (201) 740-7095.
