About us

Drug Free RC is a collaborative effort working with schools, parents and youth organizations, elected officials, law enforcement agencies, businesses, chamber of commerce, civic groups and faith based organizations, who are dedicated to creating a healthy community. Our goal is to reduce or prevent the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs by the youth in Rancho Cucamonga.

Drug Free RC has been a successful coalition since 2002, a former Drug Free Mentee organization (2009-2011) under the San Dieguito for Drug Free Youth, and a Drug Free Community grant recipient since 2013.  Drug Free RC, has an illustrious history of encouraging youth and community members to make wise choices concerning the use of substances and promoting collaboration among all twelve sectors of the community.

Drug Free RC staff and sector leader membership are vocal and involved local community figures with knowledge of the surrounding geographical area, formal expertise, and training in the realm of counseling, law enforcement, substance education and prevention, while possessing a myriad of applicable skills.
