The Coalition meets on a bi-monthly basis while the executive, subcommittees, and EDGE group meeting on a monthly basis. At these meetings, we further
develop our mission of reducing substance abuse by organizing future events, reviewing current
statistics and studies, and developing ways to further enhance the positive effect of our efforts
on our communities.
Join a meeting, get involved! We need your help in keeping our communities safe, healthy, and drug free!
Check out the marijuana awareness campaign developed by Miranda Creative and EDGE High School Students! They are dedicated to raising awareness among their peers and the community surrounding the negative effects of marijuana use.
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.
