Promise Neighborhoods consists of concerned community members and adolescents seeking to prevent and or eliminate drug, opioid, alcohol, and marijuana misuse in Prince George’s County Maryland southern county. The coalition sponsors community events that educate and informs all especially to substance misuse problems and its harms. Since its start in October 2014, Promise Neighborhoods Drug Free Coalition has brought together experts and youth to strategize and implement policies and programs aimed to yield solid solutions to alleviate challenges with teen alcohol, opioids, and marijuana abuse.  Hear a word from our peer youth ambassador, OR Click Here learn more about our “Let’s Us Chat” Roundtable where we discuss these topics and more!

Drug and alcohol addiction not only continues to soar within our community, but it has managed to overtake the lives of our youth. The Promise Neighborhoods Drug Free Coalition is determined to combat this crisis by engaging, involving, advocating, increasing knowledge and bringing awareness of alcohol, tobacco, marijuana and other drug abuse issues through education and prevention interventions, in order to build a healthy, safe and drug free community. Our vision is to prepare the next generation of leadership for Prince George’s County locally and nationally. Our youth are our now!

The Promise Neighborhoods Drug Free Coalition creates programs, forums, and summits that focus on drug and alcohol abuse prevention. We pride ourselves on educating children, young adults, parents, and members of the community, in order to assist Prince George’s County residents with preventing, refraining from the use of harmful drugs, underage alcohol, and tobacco use. The Coalition provides a foundation for growth that will lead to the development of strong character, accountability, and integrity as a youth leader. It is important for us to provide opportunities for the youth as they mature, so they are able to explore life’s possibilities, and their personal plan for their lives. We focus on the vital role of families, friends, media, businesses, and communities as they pertain to the problem and solution. The Promise Neighborhoods Drug Free Coalition supports other drug free coalitions through partnerships and collaborations. Together we can create a drug free community.  Help DFC reach our goal by getting involved!  OR view our resource page and upcoming events.
