Hillsborough County Anti Drug Alliance (HCADA) has been in existence, active in the community, and supportive of law enforcement, the court system, prevention agencies, and substance abuse treatment providers since its inception in 1989. In 2003, HCADA restructured as a 501(c)(3) in order to apply for grant funding and subsequently, expanded its community-based alcohol, tobacco, and substance abuse education and prevention activities, as well as participation in the development of related planning strategies – statewide in scope – for the betterment of the Hillsborough County community.

Stop Rx Drug Abuse

Conclusions: RWID and DUI are significantly associated with greater alcohol and marijuana use over time. This study highlights that teens may be at higher risk for problem substance use in the future even if they ride with someone who is impaired. Prevention and intervention efforts for adolescents need to address both driving under the influence and riding with an impaired driver to prevent downstream consequences.

Associations between driving under the influence or riding with an impaired driver and future substance use among adolescents.
