The South Tahoe Drug Free Coalition was created to address the high levels of youth substance use in South Lake Tahoe, CA - a rural resort town with a population that increases from 20,000 to approximately 100,000 in peak vacation seasons. This makes our coalition extremely unique.
The 24/7 casinos, seasonal and resort-based employment, a marijuana dispensary and a local ordinance that allows for legal residential-grows all equate to Tahoe's "party town" culture. This culture has worsened in recent years, making alcohol and drug use abundant and easily accessible to our youth.
