Communities for Alcohol- and Drug-free Youth’s (CADY) mission is to help our local youth make healthy and safe choices by working with schools, parents, youth, and communities to prevent and reduce youth alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use and to promote healthy environments and promising futures.
Our focus is comprehensive, outcome-based substance abuse prevention via extensive collaborations, implementation of environmental prevention strategies, and development of award-winning, youth empowerment programming.
Every year thousands of New Hampshire youth make a choice—a choice to use or not use alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. Substance abuse is a serious health and safety risk for our children and communities. We believe prevention is one of the most responsible, humane, and cost effective practices to address the problem of substance misuse and addiction.
