Mission Statement

The Bedford/Lewisboro/Pound Ridge Drug Abuse Prevention Council (DAPC) is dedicated to the concept of primary prevention, which is defined as a program of activities directed at improving the general well-being of the community as it relates to raising awareness about the dangers of alcohol and other drug use and abuse. The Council does this by disseminating information, sponsoring presentations, and working with various community sectors to promote healthy lifestyles. The goal of DAPC initiatives is to create a positive and safe environment for individuals, families and the community by addressing the various risk and protective factors for substance use and abuse.



The DAPC strives to involve community members from various sectors including parents, schools, youth, businesses, media, healthcare professionals, law enforcement, religious organizations, civic and volunteer groups, and youth-serving organizations. New members are always welcome! Contact Kathryn Ferrara, DAPC Program Coordinator, at kathryn.dapc@gmail.com for more information.


DAPC meetings will take place monthly via Zoom until further notice. If you are interested in attending an upcoming meeting, please contact Kathryn Ferrara, DAPC Program Coordinator, at kathryn.dapc@gmail.com.
