When the Cambria County Drug Coalition was formed just a short 30 months ago, three key areas of focus were emphasized: law enforcement, treatment and prevention. 

In short, the law enforcement focus is to make it very difficult on those who deal in the illegal drug trade. The treatment focus is to help those battling with substance use disorder. And the prevention focus is to educate our families and youth for the long term. 

Hence, preventing drug and alcohol use and abuse from occurring in the first place.

As one of the founding organizations of the Cambria County Drug Coalition, the United Way of the Laurel Highlands is proud of the fact that the coalition continues to evolve. Many community members are working together under the coalition’s umbrella for the betterment of our entire county. With this collaborative growth and planning, positive results are occurring.
