Madison Chatham Coalition

Our mission is to prevent and reduce youth substance use through education, collaboration and community-wide change.

The Madison Chatham Coalition (MCC) is a community prevention organization funded by the Office of National Drug Control Policy and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. Community members and partner organizations come together to address underage drinking and the illegal use of marijuana through the implementation of effective, evidence-based prevention initiatives.

Night of Conversation: A Prevention Podcast

Substance use and mental health can be challenging topics to discuss with teens. Night of Conversation is an initiative to support parents to raise healthy teens empowered to make good choices including avoiding the use of alcohol and drugs. In an effort to answer difficult questions and learn effective ways to open the lines of communication between parents and teens, we invite families to tune into “Night of Conversation: A Prevention Podcast.”
