The Solution is in the Community.
The mission of the Durham Middlefield Local Wellness Coalition is to reduce the harm of alcohol, tobacco, marijuana and other drugs in our towns through community action, education, support, and collaboration.
The Durham Middlefield Local Wellness Coalition (DMLWC) is a group of individuals and organizations that partner and volunteer their time to maintain a safe, healthy, and drug-free community for local youth. The coalition has a wide representation from the community; schools, businesses, faith organizations, physicians, local government officials, law enforcement, media, parents, youth, and other community members.
We continue to measure our progress and utilize best practices to address high risk behaviors among our youth. Although we have seen some success, there is still work to be done within our community, and we need your help!
There are many ways community members can help build a healthier community with the coalition - many involve only a few minutes of your time!
The Durham Middlefield Local Wellness Coalition is a Non-Profit Organization funded by the Drug-Free Communities Grant from the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) and the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and Local Prevention Funds through the Middlesex County Substance Abuse Action Council (MCSAAC).
