Our Community Allied with Youth

The OCAY Coalition acts as a catalyst for increased citizen participation in efforts to reduce substance use among youth by bridging education, community, and partner organization efforts to implement educational efforts, community activities, environmental strategies, and evidenced based programs.


Our Community with a Common Goal

The Tenafly TEACH (OCAY Coalition) vision is to have an alcohol and drug free community; which will produce mentally, physically and socially healthy citizens.

The Goals of OCAY

The Coalition seeks to reduce alcohol sales to minors through policy change initiatives to reduce access to alcohol, by educating local alcohol permit holders, and advocating for changes in law enforcement and court policies and practices related to substance use violations.

OCAY promotes awareness and education on the effect of marijuana by providing trainings and technical assistance on signs and symptoms of marijuana use to teachers, parents and professionals that work with youth. The Coalition hosts events that educate the community about the health, social, and legal consequences of marijuana use among youth in grades 6th through 12th.

The OCAY Coalition develops environment strategies to reduce access to prescription drugs, such as hosting Prescription Drug Take Back events and implementing Operation Medicine Cabinet.
We host community forums to educate community members of all ages and walks of life about medication security in homes, and how to safely dispose of medication.

Get involved…We can all be OCAY!
