Local organizations making a difference – The Pennsauken Alliance on Substance Abuse

The Pennsauken Alliance on Substance Abuse (PASA)  works to educate the community about ways to stop abuse of drugs, alcohol, and tobacco.   The PASA works closely with Pennsauken High School’s substance abuse counselor and SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) chapter to develop and support programs to help students stay away from alcohol, drugs, and tobacco. PASA works with the community to get involvement from local residents, businesses and organizations.

PASA is part of the Camden County Municipal Alliance which provides services to expand the prevention and education components of the Comprehensive Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Plan of Camden County.  That includes coordinating the programs of local alliances throughout Camden County including Project Prom and Project Graduation and coordinating funding for local programs.

PASA meets on the second Wednesday of each month, 7:00 p.m. at Temple Lutheran Church, 5600 North Route 130 in Pennsauken.
