Drug Free Alton Coalition
is committed to prevention youth from using alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. DFA serves the Greater Alton area (Alton and Godfrey). In 2005, DFA was awarded the Drug Free Communities grant and wrapped up its tenth and final year in September of 2015. Through diligent and hard work this funding was put to great use and yielded positive results. In fact, DFA played an instrumental role in decreasing access to alcohol by more than 20% (according the Illinois Youth Survey 10th grade AHS students)! The coalition is currently funded by the Illinois Department of Human Services SAPP Grant to further our work to prevent underage drinking and youth substance use. DFA invites and encourages all community members to be a part of the solution and join our efforts!
