About the Coalition

The South Tahoe Drug Free Coalition was created to address the high levels of youth substance use in South Lake Tahoe, CA; a rural, resort town with a population that increases from 20,000 to approximately 100,000 in the peak vacation seasons, which makes our Coalition unique. The 24/7 casinos, seasonal/resort based employment, a marijuana dispensary and a local ordinance that allows for legal residential grows all equates to Tahoe’s “party town” culture worsening in recent years, making alcohol and drug use abundant and easily accessible to youth.

The Coalition’s primary goals are to reduce youth substance use (specifically alcohol, marijuana, and prescription drugs) while building collaboration within the community.
