1968 a physician, a pharmacist and a police officer came together to respond to a growing substance abuse problem in their community. They gave their time, effort and money and founded an organization that has changed lives for more than 5 decades now. As a result of their commitment and desire to make a difference in the lives of people seeking help, Drug Abuse Foundation was born. The Founding focus of the new organization was prevention, that focus was expanded very shortly there after to include treatment. Today that focus now includes prevention, intervention, crisis stabilization, med/psych and treatment.
