April 2007 Agency Highlights

The following ADAD funded programs are a small sampling of activities by Colorado agencies working to prevent underage drinking:

Communities Mobilizing for Change on Alcohol
CMCA’s Coalition disseminates information about underage drinking across communities, and then takes action on goals such as: reducing the number and proportion of alcohol outlets selling to underage individuals; decreasing youth and adult tolerance of underage purchase and consumption of alcohol; decreasing prevalence, quantity, and frequency of alcohol consumption among older youths; and decreasing the incidence of alcohol-related health and social problems.
