Drug Free Communities of Fond du Lac County (DFC)
Mission: to decrease substance abuse among youth and adults in our community.
Vision: “Healthier Children Today, Healthier Community Tomorrow.”
DFC is a collaboration of individuals from over 30 community organizations, who come together to address the growing problem of substance abuse in our communities. Our goals are to prevent and reduce:
- Underage drinking
- Binge drinking
- Misuse and abuse of prescription medication and opioids
DFC has worked on prevention efforts in Fond du Lac County since 2002. In 2015, DFC expanded efforts to address opioid abuse, moving our strategies beyond our Prevention framework. We adopted the “Four Pillar Drug Strategy” outlined by the Wisconsin State Council on Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse. These “Four Pillar” work groups include: Prevention, Harm Reduction, Law Enforcement and Treatment which constitutes DFC’s Opioid Initiative. This coordinated, strategic approach addresses opioid use in a more effective and multidisciplinary avenue to create a safer, healthier community.

Our 2021 “Start The Conversation” 5K Run/Walk has been scheduled for April 17th, 20201 in Lakeside Park! Mark your calendars and watch for more information as we get closer or check out our Facebook for event here!
