The Director of Central Vermont New Directions Coalition in Montpelier, Ann Gilbert, (front, second from right), spent the first week of February in Washington DC as part of the Vermont delegation to Capitol Hill and the CADCA Conference (Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America). As National Surveys on Drug Use and Health indicate, Vermont youth lead the nation in marijuana use, high-risk drinking, and prescription drug abuse, Ann represented Prevention Works VT and The Partnership For Success and met with the offices of Representative Peter Welch, Senators Bernie Sanders and Patrick Leahy to provide information about concerns for youth facing substance abuse and addiction in Vermont and the need for funding prevention strategies to keep teens safe and drug-free.
