Anti-Drug Coalition receives a $625,000 Grant

A grass-roots program started by the Camarillo Chabad to help prevent underage drinking and drug use in Camarillo was recently awarded a $625,000 federal grant.

The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy in partnership with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration recently announced it would give the fiveyear grant for $125,000 a year to Saving Lives Camarillo, community based drug and alcohol prevention group that was created by the Camarillo Chabad.

The money was given through the federally funded Drug Free Communities Support Program.

“The Drug Free Communities grant will allow Saving Lives Camarillo to implement strategies that will reduce underage access to alcohol and address the rise in marijuana use among Camarillo youth,” said Rabbi Aryeh Lang, the coalition’s director. “Through the collaborative efforts of the schools, law enforcement, the faith community, businesses, healthcare, youth and parents, we will reduce injuries and deaths in the community caused by underage drinking and drug use.”
