Creating spaces for education, dialogue, and action is a vital part of our mission.
The Contra Costa County MEDS Coalition hosts in-person and virtual events, presentations, and workshops that bring people together to educate, discuss challenges, and develop solutions to prevent substance use disorder and fatal overdoses.
Here, you can access past presentations and workshops as well as educational video series created by our team.
From April 26th through May 1st, 2021, the CCC MEDS Coalition and NCAPDA hosted Art4Action Week, a week of unique virtual workshops and presentations dedicated to showing how art can be used for advocacy, prevention, recovery, and healing. We are honored to spotlight incredible artists from across the nation, from independent artists to organizations such as R2ise To Recovery. The NCAPDA Youth Ambassadors also led a workshop for youth and announced the winners of our April 2021 “Life’s Too Good to be Wasted” Art and Video Contest in our Youth4Action event.
