Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition
of Alexandria (SAPCA)
SAPCA is an alliance of parents, youth, schools, city health and recreation agencies, media, nonprofits, businesses, policymakers and law enforcement.
Our mission is to engage diverse sectors of the community in collaborative, cross-cultural and comprehensive substance abuse prevention efforts that result in a reduction of underage substance use and abuse in the City of Alexandria.
SAPCA is a member of the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) , the nation’s leading drug abuse prevention organization. CADCA represents the interests of more than 5,000 community anti-drug coalitions and comprises members from every U.S. state and territory.
SAPCA uses a variety of community-wide strategies to accomplish our goals, which are outlined in our action plan. Each of these strategies represents a key element in building and maintaining a healthy community.
