The Orange County Drug-Free Coalition has worked with Orange County Public Schools for over twelve years with the opportunity to serve on the Safe Schools/Healthy Students Core Management Team. The mission of the Coalition is to work in collaboration with community members and agencies to prevent and reduce the use and abuse of alcohol and other drugs among our youth and adults through prevention education, enforcement, and treatment. Our partners include:
Real Talk is a comprehensive, educational program designed for high school and college students that discusses the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse. Real Talk aims to equip students with the information they need to make responsible decisions and avoid the unintended consequences of experimenting with or abusing drugs and alcohol.
Operation Prevention's mission is to educate students about the real impacts of opioids and kick-start lifesaving conversations in the home and classroom.
