Who We Are

The Tehama County Drug-Free Community Coalition (DFCC) is a group of concerned residents whose mission is to reduce and prevent substance ‚Äčabuse among youth in Tehama County.  Formed in 2015, the group represents a cross-section of the community with members from 12 different sectors, including parents, students, law enforcement, educators, business, government and religious and civic organizations.  The DFCC works in partnership with the Tehama County Strategic Prevention Framework, a similar coalition formed in 2010.

Strategies

The DFCC uses comprehensive, evidence-based strategies to inform and educate the public about the dangers of drug use and to change policies and environmental factors to limit drug access and availability.  Activities include:

  • Town Hall/Community meetings

  • Bi-annual surveys of youth drug trends
  • Trainings and seminars
  • Legislative advocacy
  • Use of social media
