Connect our communities to reduce substance abuse and violent crime.
The meaning of CADCOR
Community: Through location, participation, interests, age and numerous other factors we are members of many communities. CADCOR presents the vision of a safe and healthy drug free community where children surpass their potential and families meet to solve problems for the few and for the many. As our varied lives and backgrounds come together, our neighborhoods strengthen our cities, county, state, and country.
Anti-drug: We aim to provide a better community for both the youth and adults of Rutherford County by reducing substance abuse and access. We do so by addressing the factors (Underage Alcohol, Tobacco, and Non-Medical Prescription Drug Usage) that increase substance abuse and arming the community and our partners with the knowledge and support to minimize the risk of substance abuse.
