Advocacy

We champion evidence-based policy and believe it will reduce the long term harms of drugs and alcohol in our state.

Throughout its history, CINC has supported, and continues to actively support, important issues of interest to our work through cooperation with other local, state, and national partners in the substance misuse prevention, treatment, research and recovery field.

We have provided workshops and seminars on public policy advocacy for the Eastern Area Health Education Center, Addiction Professionals of North Carolina, the NC Foundation for Alcohol and Drug Studies, East Carolina University, and other agencies and organization.

Advocacy differs from Lobbying because it references No Specific Bill and has No Call To Action.

Prevention works

We know that primary prevention is the best way to improve rates of use from alcohol and other drugs. We support growing funding for primary prevention, focusing on evidence-based practices. We’re also looking to partner with others to improve the protective factors or social determinants that put families at risk generation after generation.

Listed below are some of the agencies and organizations we have partnered with to advance the prevention of substance use disorders.
