A personal reflection from our Coalition Coordinator, June Deibel: "Josh is one of my 'whys' - one of the main reasons I get up every day to work in prevention. He was one of my daughter's closest friends and we feel his loss in so many ways. If I can build awareness of the risks of prescription drug use/misuse and effect a change in our community, then I will be doing that in his memory along with others that have also struggled and lost their battles with addiction. I will continue to remember Josh with fondness and share his story of life and purpose."

The Ultimate Do's and Don’ts Guide for Talking to Your Kids about Drug and Alcohol Abuse

HEY PARENTS!

We have all slowed down, we are spending more time at home, more time with our kids. This can be the perfect time to have those conversations you've been avoiding about the dangers of alcohol and other drugs. Check out the link below for some helpful tips on how to get the conversation started.

https://www.treehouserehab.org/talking-kids-about-drug-alcohol-abuse/

Even if you think your child is well-aware of the risks, as the most important role model in his or her life, it is always necessary to have the conversation about addiction and drug and alcohol abuse.

Kratom is rapidly growing in popularity. It is often marketed as as being “safe” because it is plant based, but how much do you really know about it?

Did you know that Kratom can cause effects similar to both opioids and stimulants? How about that it can be consumed as a pill,a capsule, or an extract?

Visit https://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/drugfacts/kratom to learn more about this growing trend.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the DEA has postponed the 2020 Spring National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, originally scheduled for April 25. Until it can be rescheduled, it is still important to clean out your medicine cabinets and secure unused, unwanted, and expired medications until the next National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.

"I'm not saying harm reduction doesn't work, I'm not staying treatment and recovery doesn't work. It does. Some people will recover, but we have no way of knowing who will recover and who won't. The best plan of action we can take is to stop it before it gets in. THAT'S what you do. THAT'S prevention. Don't be afraid to fight that fight."

Our Story

Thank you for your interest in the Dallas Area Drug Prevention Partnership (DADPP)! DADPP is an outgrowth of the Cheese/Heroin Task Force, which was established in March 2007 to address the growing concern over cheese/he**in overdose deaths. Since January 2009, DADPP has been working to reduce the incidence and impact of he**in, ma*****na and prescription drugs. DADPP has developed critical relationships within the community to increase collaboration and create drug prevention strategies. DADPP represents a collaborative effort that is based on the simple premise that local people are in the best position to solve specific local problems. People are more likely to support what they help create and change is most likely to occur when the process engages many facets of a community in a collaborative approach. The coalition is a collaboration of the following groups: concerned citizens, law enforcement personnel, educators, substance abuse prevention and treatment professionals, health care providers, government officials, faith based organizations, churches, area youth, and other area coalitions targeting youth. Together they facilitate accurate data collection, educate youth, parents and the community, promote healthy media messages and conduct community outreach. DADPP implements evidence – based environmental strategies that make a positive impact on youth in the Dallas area. Environmental strategies are aimed at population-level change and seek to (1) limit youth access to substances (2) change the culture and contexts within which decisions about substances are made, and (3) reduce the prevalence of negative consequences associated with substance use. These environmental strategies create community-wide change by challenging perceptions and increasing substance abuse awareness. Recovery Resource Council (RRC) manages the Dallas Area Drug Prevention Partnership as the fiscal and programmatic agent. DADPP is a natural extension of the RRC’s long-time emphasis on preventing problems related to substance misuse before they occur, intervening when they do and promoting recovery for people already addicted. Whether you are interested in joining the DADPP Coalition, volunteering for one of our community events, submitting a request for resources or for us to come speak at your school or organization, we’re happy to hear from you! Please let us know how DADPP can serve you!
