Manalapan-Englishtown Community Alliance to Prevent Alcoholism and Drug Abuse

Since 1990, the Manalapan-Englishtown Community Alliance to Prevent Alcoholism and Drug Abuse has been committed to bringing the goal of a substance abuse free environment closer to fruition. It is through the efforts of the community working together that our programs have been so widely received. We are vested in the concept that the whole community must be involved in the planning, execution and participation of alliance activities.  Our outreach into the community touches all ages as there are education needs for both youth and adults.
