The Tehama County Drug-Free Community Coalition (DFCC) is a group of concerned residents whose mission is to reduce and prevent substance abuse 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.
