Since 2005, We’ve Been Partnering with Communities.

A team of Firefighters founded Drug Free Clubs of America in 2005 in response to the drug-related tragedies they witnessed every day. They regularly were called on to rescue people whose lives had been devastated by overdoses, violence, accidents, or even death. To them there was nothing more difficult than being called to a scene resulting in the loss of a young life. This was especially true when it was caused by something as avoidable as drug abuse. It stung even more to know that every single one of those teens were drug-free at one point.


DFCA has a direct impact on empowering DFCA Members to live drug-free:

Agree they are more CONFIDENT about how to handle situations with drugs.
Agree that one or more aspects of DFCA have helped them stay drug-free.
Agree that they would recommend DFCA to others.
Agree that their experience with DFCA will have a positive impact on their long-term future.

Sometimes I think “What if I wasn’t in the Drug Free Club of America? What if I had been steered into peer-pressure and smoked that night?” Every high school student should be a member of The Drug Free Club of America so they can learn that their lives are much too important to throw away on drugs.

Alex H., Freshman

The Drug Free Club has played a large influence on my life, the person I have become, and the kind of person I will be in the future. I have been influenced to stay free from drugs and alcohol. I will plan to continue on in this way in the future and I hope that I am influencing others to do the same.

Their programs are well thought out and certainly would benefit any school or community wanting to implement them.
