Fairfax Prevention Coalition (FPC) is a partnership of parents, youth, schools, healthcare providers, government agencies, law enforcement, faith-based organizations, media, nonprofits, businesses, policymakers and volunteers, working together, to combat substance misuse in our community. The vision of the FPC is for a healthy and safe community free of substance misuse. The mission is to empower the community to understand, prevent, and reduce substance misuse.
The Fairfax Prevention Coalition collaborates with community partners in its endeavors to reduce substance abuse in the community. Each community sector can provide valuable support and feedback that can help the coalition implement more effective and relevant strategies. FPC follows the model of the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) to include as many potential partners as possible. Strong representation from all community sectors can harness our community’s power to create change and ensure sustained action.
FPC provides numerous resources for mental health, emergency services, recovery groups, family support, and many more.
