  • 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.

    MISSION:  Influence public awareness, policy, and funding to support alcohol, tobacco, and other drug prevention, intervention, treatment, and recovery throughout Cheshire County, NH.

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

    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.

    Courtesy of the American Cancer Society:

    The American Cancer Society marks the Great American Smokeout on the third Thursday of November each year by encouraging smokers to use the date to make a plan to quit, or to plan in advance and quit smoking that day. By quitting — even for one day — smokers will be taking an important step towards a healthier life – one that can lead to reducing cancer risk.

    Tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the US, yet about 42 million Americans still smoke cigarettes — a bit under 1 in every 5 adults. As of 2012, there were also 13.4 million cigar smokers in the US, and 2.3 million who smoke tobacco in pipes — other dangerous and addictive forms of tobacco.

    See our quitting resources and information.
