Porter County Substance Abuse Council CADCA Forum attendees: Jaime Bauer, PATH educator and secretary of the PCSAC, Beatrice Owen, PCSAC director, and Michelle Volk, Great Lakes Labs CEO, and Substance Abuse Council president attending the CADCA Forum.

Five of the seven US Drug Czars were in one location at the same time. The occasion was the annual meeting of the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America’s (CADCA) National Forum. Held each year in our nation’s capital, this event is attended by over 2,500 coalition leaders from around the U.S. and overseas. This year, the 25th annual forum, attendees learned how coalitions and their members are “Agents of Change.”

The Porter County Substance Abuse Council sent three individuals to Washington, D.C. to learn about effective, evidence-based strategies that help reduce substance abuse in communities.

“Marijuana use is increasing because our youth think it is okay, it’s not,” Michelle Volk, president of the Substance Abuse Council, said. “I so enjoyed hearing former Drug Czar William Bennett talk about the dangers of marijuana.”

Jaime Bauer, secretary of the board, collaborated with coalitions in Lake and La Porte counties knowing that the substance abuse problem does not stop at an invisible line between counties.

The focus of the Forum was prevention. For every $1 that a community spends on prevention there is a savings of between $2 and $20. A recipient of the federal Drug Free Communities Grant, the Substance Abuse Council is investing $125,000 per year in prevention in Porter County. The savings to Porter County are between $250,000 and $2.5 million, per year for up to 10 years.
