Saranda Ceka, MPH, Drug Abuse Program Coordinator
The Ocean County Alliance program, housed under the Ocean County Board of Health, is comprised of 16 separate Municipal Alliances spread throughout various towns within Ocean County. Municipal Alliances are spearheaded by committees made up of dedicated citizens, professionals and volunteers who provide substance abuse prevention services to their communities. Alliances plan, coordinate and conduct alcohol, tobacco and other drug prevention programs for all members of the community from young children to older adults and collaborate with local government, schools, law enforcement, businesses and community agencies.

Municipal Alliances are funded by the Governor’s Council on Drug Abuse (GCADA) by using DEDR funds- mandatory fines imposed on drunk/drugged drivers and other drug related offenses – to run community programs and events which combat substance abuse. The Ocean County Alliance program receives oversight from two separate entities in order to assure efficient administration and coordination. The Local Advisory Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse (LACADA) determines and documents substance abuse service needs for the county while the County Alliance Steering Subcommittee (CASS), which falls under LACADA, is responsible for developing the county prevention proposal.

Municipal Alliance programs are developed through a multi-stage development plan which includes a needs assessment, identifying risk factors specific to the individual municipality and submitting a Request for Proposal. All Municipal Alliances utilize the Strategic Prevention Framework to guide program planning and implementation.

Whether you are taking part in a local 5K, attending a Community Family Night, enjoying a movie on the beach or stopping by a Senior Fair, Municipal Alliances are a constant presence in the communities they serve. Feel free to join a committee, volunteer at an event or even just attend one of the many wonderful programs the Alliances have to offer.

Eagleswood/Little Egg Harbor/Tuckerton
