Okmulgee County Drug Free Communities Program (DFC)
The Drug Free Communities Support Program (DFC), created by the Drug Free Communities Act of 1997, is the nation’s leading effort to mobilize communities to prevent youth drug use. Directed by ONDCP, in partnership with SAMHSA, the DFC program provides grants to local drug-free community coalitions to increase collaboration among community partners and to prevent and reduce youth substance use.
Recognizing the fundamental concept that local problems need local solutions, DFC-funded coalitions engage multiple sectors of the community and employ a variety of strategies to address local drug problems. Coalition members conduct ongoing community assessments to prioritize efforts to prevent and reduce youth drug use. These assessments are used to plan and implement data-driven, community-wide strategies.
The DFC program requires funded coalitions to employ environmental strategies in broad initiatives aimed at addressing the entire community through the adaptation of policies and practices related to youth substance use. In doing so, coalitions can address the environment as a whole and get the most out of available resources.
The DFC grant works on two priorities:
- Underage drinking
- Misuse of prescription drugs among youth
The Okmulgee County Consortium is a community coalition that implements evidence-based strategies to address the issues of underage drinking prevention and the misuse of prescription drugs in youth.
For more information on the coalition, please visit:
The DFC grant conducts Alcohol Compliance Checks (ACCs) in conjunction with law enforcement to ensure alcohol sales are not being made to minors. Responsible Beverage Sales and Service (RBSS) classes are also offered to alcohol vendors/servers to ensure compliance with laws.
The DFC grant educates the public about the misuse of prescription drugs, proper storage, and proper disposal locations in Okmulgee County and supports the National Drug Take Back Days. For more information, visit: www.takeasprescribed.org
