Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) is one of America’s leading drug prevention organizations, giving anti-drug coalitions the tools to succeed since 1992. This year, Community Partners’ Community Coalition Coordinator Tana Nelsen attended their National Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C.
“CADCA was a great opportunity for learning and networking. There were many different workshops to learn about new substance abuse trends, prevention strategies and the results that show they are proven to work.
“Along with these workshops was the ability to network with other passionate people dedicated to reducing substance abuse and bettering their communities. There was one day dedicated to visiting our U.S. Senators at Capitol Hill. I, along with the other Nebraska attendees, was able to meet with Senator Mike Johanns and discuss with him the efforts our communities put forth to keep our communities on the right track.
“Overall, CADCA is a great resource for our community to continue our work in prevention, and I am excited to share and use the knowledge I have brought back.”
