Hope + Healing you can read about...
Be Aware. Be Kind. Offer Hope.
Alcohol Awareness Month was established in 1987 to help reduce the stigma so often associated with alcoholism. Every April, we do our part to shine a light on and educate our community about alcohol, alcoholism, and recovery. Because of the negative stigma and beliefs surrounding the disease of alcoholism, more than 60% of people who need treatment will not seek it. Alcoholism is a chronic, progressive disease, genetically predisposed and fatal if untreated. We are asking you to be aware, be kind, and offer hope to those in need.
Alcohol remains the primary reason for admission to substance abuse treatment in the Coastal Bend and all of Texas. Visit our website for more information on the treatment services we provide for youth and adults.
Check out our Alcohol Awareness Video HERE and share it with friends!
YPU/YPI Encourages You To Sign Up for Text Tips
Our Youth Prevention Universal and Youth Prevention Indicated programs want you to sign up to receive text messages from Drug Free Texas . The messages, brought to you by Texas Health and Human Services (HHS), are free and filled with great tips about how to talk to your kids about substance use and making healthy choices. We are excited to partner with HHS and promote such an informative campaign. Feel free to encourage other parents you know to sign up as well.
Community Coalition Partnerships Reminds You To Participate in Take Back Day
Health and Human Services reports that 3,900 people initiate non-medical use of the highly addictive prescription opioids and young adults aged 18 to 24 have become opioids’ biggest abusers. An overwhelming majority (68%) of prescription drug abusers/misusers are obtaining these drugs from a friend/relative for free or without asking. 

The DEA’s Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths. Stop by one of the locations listed on the right to take back your expired or unused prescription drugs on April 28.

Or utilize our prescription drug drop boxes that are open year round. Locations can be found here.

COADA Takes Over The CC IceRays Rink
If you weren't able to join us at the April 6 CC IceRays game...you missed out on tons of fun. Our Executive Director, Melissa Hofstetter, dropped the puck to start the game. Hundreds of IceRays fans stopped by our tables to learn more about the dangers of substance abuse and win prizes. And our Recovery Support Services' Supervisor, Jose Rios, beat Recovery Coach, Ruben Bernal, in the drunk simulation goggle ball drop game during intermission.
A special thanks to the Corpus Christi IceRays for helping us donate over 4000 tickets to students at area schools and good luck to them in the playoffs!
We are looking for sponsors!
