CADCA Unveils New Online Toolkit to Help Coalitions Reduce Tobacco Use | CADCA

Tobacco use remains the number one cause of preventable death in the U.S., with 5.6 million of today’s young people projected to die prematurely from a smoking-related illness. To help communities address this problem, CADCA has developed a new online Tobacco Use Prevention Toolkit, which is designed to provide coalitions and drug prevention practitioners with strategies and ideas they can implement to prevent and reduce tobacco use in their communities.

The toolkit uses as its basis CADCA’s Seven Strategies for Effective Community Change, providing actions and strategies coalitions can use for each of the seven steps to achieve community change. The toolkit’s content is based on an environmental approach, with strategies aimed at changing or influencing community conditions, standards, institutions, structures, systems and policies.
