Program Partners

Every DFCA branch depends upon strategic partnerships to make the program a success. These collaborations provide key players in each community’s DFCA team. This is just one of several ways many different groups come together through DFCA to protect our youth from the horrors of drug abuse.

The “Testing Partners” below are medical professionals who donate drug test collection services at their local schools. Their generosity and sense of community is the reason why our teens have the power to say, “I can’t, I might get tested”.

The “Parent Resources” below are a lifeline for parents who receive a child’s positive drug test result. They are knowledgeable sources of information for parents in an unfamiliar situation. This is not a referral, not counseling, nothing is charged and nothing is documented. Saint Elizabeth EAP is our main Parent Resource. Dave is willing to speak with any parent in any area about this critical moment. Parents with questions can call him directly at 859.301.2570. All other Parent Resources are area specific, serving that particular community, and are willing to help in the same way.
