The Stop Access Drug Free Communities Coalition is a citywide coalition serving Springfield Massachusetts with the goal of addressing community level change to prevent and reduce underage drinking, and use of marijuana and tobacco/nicotine under the age of twenty-one years, focusing primarily on middle and high school age youth.
The coalition is coordinated by Gándara Center and funded by a grant from the U.S. Office of National Drug Control Policy, administered by the Center for Disease Control.
The coalition’s overarching aim is to use environmental strategies that affect community level-change, change community attitudes and youth access to alcohol, marijuana and tobacco through a variety of strategies. Strategies are selected based on community need data and input from the Springfield community. The Stop Access Coalition invites the participation of all interested residents and organizations of the city of Springfield.
