• Scarsdale Task Force on Drugs and Alcohol

    Mission Statement

    (Rev. September 2015)


    The Scarsdale Task Force on Drugs and Alcohol is a community action group dedicated to reducing the underage use of alcohol and all illegal drugs in our community.  We aim to promote a substance free culture by implementing environmental strategies and by educating and empowering youth, their families and our community to make safe and healthy decisions.


    Through ongoing community collaboration and the use of a research based framework, we believe we can achieve a vision of a safer and substance-free environment for our children.


    Since its founding in 1984, the Task Force has involved parents, teachers, school, administrators, mental health professionals, village officials and community clergy in its efforts.  We welcome your involvement.
