Partnership for a Drug-Free Community, a private, non-profit organization is solely focused on prevention and education. We do not provide treatment services. Our current emphasis is the prevention of prescription pill abuse and heroin usage. This is primarily accomplished through our youth advocacy program, Today’s Youth, Tomorrow’s Leaders (TYTL). TYTL is a group of teens from numerous local city and county high schools. They are trained advocates to promote the message that “popping pills and doing drugs” is not cool.
Our Mission is to reduce the illegal use or abuse of drugs including alcohol, inhalants, methamphetamine, marijuana and tobacco among youth throughout the Huntsville/Madison County community-at-large. This mission is accomplished through strengthened anti-drug coalition efforts using research-based, scientific and environmental strategies.
