Middletown Prevention Coalition

The MPC is a community based coalition comprised of individuals representing various public and private sectors of the Middletown community.  These sectors include: law enforcement; youth; religious or fraternal organizations; media; school; parents; civic or volunteer organizations; business; youth serving organizations; organizations involved in reducing substance abuse; health care; State, local governmental agency and other interested citizens. The “best practices” literature for community change states that all major sectors of a community need to be around the table in order to impact the norms around substance use and create true community change.
