AODAAC's Purpose and Charge

The Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Advisory Council (AODAAC) meets monthly to discuss and continue learning about substance abuse issues facing our community.  AODAAC provides guidance to the County Executive and County Council to identify alcohol and drug prevention and treatment needs in Montgomery County and reviews the County's efforts to address those needs.

AODAAC's Key Issues

  • Educate county residents about the harms of abusing both alcohol and other drugs and work to decrease the availability and use of these products in the community.
  • Advocate for adequate funding for alcohol and drug prevention and treatment programs.
  • Advocate for evidence-based laws regulating alcohol and drugs in the county and the state.
  • Work with Montgomery County public and private schools to educate students, parents and teachers alcohol and drugs using an evidence-based curriculum.
