Mission Statement

The mission of the Pittsfield Drug and Alcohol Coalition (PDAC) is to provide a healthier Pittsfield Community by reducing substance abuse, underage drinking and alcohol addictions.  These initiative must be sustained through  collaborative community involvement by providing prevention information, intervention solutions and treatment efforts that will promote positive behaviors which will measurably improve the health and well being for our youth, families and citizens.

 

 

Definition of a Coalition

“A coalition is a formal agreement and collaboration between groups or sectors of a community in which each group retains its identity but will agree to work together toward a common goal of building a safe, healthy and drug-free community.”

Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA)

 

The Pittsfield Drug and Alcohol Coalition continues to work collaboratively with the Pittsfield Community Coalition, the Pittsfield Youth Workshop, the Pittsfield School District and the Pittsfield Police Department by co sponsoring  Community Forums called What are our kids telling us?  The forums will be highlighting information recently released from the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) that was conducted at the PMHS by 186 students in grades 9-12 in February of 2007. 

 

The first Community Forum was conducted on May 22nd from 6-8 pm at the Pittsfield Community Center.  Food was provided and will be provided at each of the three remaining forums as well as a free door prize raffle for all who stayed until the end of the forum. The May forum focused on Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs.  Moderator Jeff Martel from PMHS led a panel of subject matter experts in a guided discussion with parents, town resident and students concerning the risky behavior trends that the students at PMHS are facing.  A second Community Forum, What are our kids telling us? will be held on Thursday, June 5th at the Pittsfield Community Center from 6-8 pm.  The subject of the 2nd Forum from the YRBS survey will be Mental Health, Wellness, and Sexuality.  Two additional Community Forums will also be conducted later in the summer. 

 

The PDAC in conjunction with the Concord Substance Abuse Coalition is also continuing to work on the Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant (SPF SIG).  A community wide assessment will be kicking off very soon.  The assessment will be gathering information relating to substance abuse issues in Pittsfield with a primary focus on binge drinking in the 17 to 34 year old population. 

 

What can you do to help?

Substance abuse and its effects on our community is a very important issue that cannot go unnoticed or unfelt by any of us.  We all experience the effects of substance abuse in our community in some manner.  Our community needs a united voice and joint commitment to provide collaborative prevention, intervention and treatment services for a reduction of substance abuse among our citizens. Pittsfield has a lot to offer related to volunteers and interested individuals.  We believe that ALL of us working together can bridge existing gaps in services, identify needs and develop new ideas and programs that will reduce substance use, strengthen our community and the futures of our children… SO WHY AREN’T YOU A MEMBER OF THE PDAC? We need you help…your community needs your help!  PDAC meets on the 2nd and 4th Monday each month at the Pittsfield Youth Work Shop in downtown Pittsfield from 7-8 pm.  For further information, call Dan Ward Chairman of the Pittsfield Drug and Alcohol Coalition at 435-5285
