The Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition of Ontario County has expanded our educational efforts to include "Community Cafes" that provide communities an opportunity to receive education on the substance abuse and then engage in a dialogue about their needs within their community to address this issue. We have hosted 2 cafes in Naples and are expanding our efforts.


This month, we will be hosting the following cafes and I have attached flyers for your use as you see fit:
