To reduce and prevent drug abuse in Hawaii through awareness, education, and action.
The Coalition for a Drug-Free Hawaii provides innovative services that help keep Hawaii’s children and families healthy, strong, and resilient against drug and alcohol abuse. Formed in 1987 out of a spirit of business and community concern, CDFH is a highly regarded leader in the substance abuse prevention field.
Every child in the islands should have the opportunity to grow up drug-free. To accomplish this, we conduct nationally recognized family strengthening services, evidence-based programs for youth, capacity building with communities, training and technical assistance, and public awareness campaigns. Our Hawaii Prevention Resource Center also serves as the state’s center for alcohol, tobacco, and other drug prevention and treatment educational materials, resources, and programs.
Thank you to our wonderful sponsors, golfers, and volunteers for making Coalition for a Drug-Free Hawaii’s 2nd Annual Charity Golf Tournament at Pearl Country Club a fun-filled and successful event! On behalf of all the youth and families in our programs, we extend our deepest appreciation and aloha.

As a result, the FASD Action Group was formed to build awareness of this highly underdiagnosed life-long disability in Hawaii.
