MADAC is a volunteer coalition with one paid staff. Our volunteers include students and educators, business owners, people in the medical field, members of law enforcement and local government, and employees from other local organizations.
We partner with other local groups and agencies, schools, and law enforcement to reduce alcohol and substance misuse through prevention initiatives, and promote healthy choices and living for everyone.
We also advocate for policy change, offer prevention education, and provide opportunities to youth, adults, parents and others to participate in fun events, presentations, special projects, and prevention trainings. It is through the generous donation of time and skills from volunteers that we are able to reduce alcohol and substance misuse and promote healthy living in Cheshire County.
We provide a wide range of community service and volunteer hours as well as internship opportunities. As part of our objective to enhance workforce development, and as a way to show our appreciation for those that donate their valuable time, we provide financial support for various educational and training opportunities.
In addition to providing free prevention education through presentations, events, and resource referrals, MADAC also offers partial payment (up to $50.00 per training) towards prevention education opportunities for anyone wishing to further their prevention knowledge or pursue Certified Prevention Specialist (CPS) Certification through the State of New Hampshire. For more information on prevention education and becoming a CPS, please visit The NH Prevention Certification Board website.
