National Alliance for Drug Endangered Children (National DEC) develops coordinated, nationwide efforts to address legal or illegal substance misuse affecting children and families and offers help, hope and support. We organize, train and support multidisciplinary teams of professionals forming DEC Alliances at the state, regional, tribal or local level.
As a trauma informed organization, we build awareness so that those affected are appropriately identified, receive appropriate intervention and services. The services provided by DEC Alliance professionals help children, family members and those in substance misuse. The goal is to break generational cycles of substance misuse, reduce trauma and improve community health and well-being.
National DEC exists to build awareness, provide training and programs, and offers tools or best practices to help make a difference in the lives of children, families and communities.
National Alliance For Drug Endangered Children at a Glance
The DEC movement challenges all of us to recognize substance misuse risks for children and families, and to work together using the DEC Approach to help break the generational cycles of substance misuse and corollary effects. By working together and leveraging resources, sharing a common vision, collaborating and changing responsively we can provide drug endangered children opportunities to live in safe and nurturing environments free from abuse and neglect.
