Lorain County’s Young Adult Alcohol/Drug Awareness (YAADA) Coalition began in April, 2010. Through a State Incentive Grant/Strategic Prevention Framework from the Ohio Department, this 3 1/2 year grant will assist Lorain County to address the needs of our young adults between the ages of 18-25. Our grant initially targets high risk alcohol use and marijuana use among this age group. Using a process similar to CTC, YAADA has been surveying the community to finalize its needs assessment data.
YAADA’s coordinator is Diana Marrero-Pinto. She can be contacted at 440.282.9920.
