  • Reducing Drug and Alcohol Use in Cheshire County

    MADAC was founded in 2003 and is made up of volunteers and one staff committed to reducing drug and alcohol use in Cheshire County.

    We offer prevention activities and education to reduce youth and young adult alcohol and substance use. We advocate for policy change and increased funding for prevention, treatment, and recovery, and offer prevention trainings, college internships, and fun events all year.

    Our goals: Reduce substance use among youth and young adults, and strengthen collaborative partnerships within communities.

    START TALKING.  The sooner the better -

    Discuss things that matter to you with your children. Talk about risks. Let them know how you feel. Whether it’s drugs, online interaction with strangers, or premarital sex, your children want to know how you feel, why you feel that way, and what could happen, and most importantly that you care about them. You are still your child’s first source of information.

    Children in the pre-teen years are very concerned about justice and fair play. They expect to have rules and directions, and they understand penalties for not following them. This is an ideal time to begin giving simple explanations about decisions and consequences, and letting kids express their feelings. While their reasoning powers are just beginning to develop and their reactions may not be the most logical, it is important to recognize their efforts and to encourage continued careful decision making.
