“The Council on Alcohol and Drugs has a long history of collaboration, consensus building and utilization of volunteers. The Council was formed in 1969 as a 501(c)3 charitable organization under the name Metropolitan Atlanta Council on Alcohol and Drugs (MACAD). The organization was created to serve as a central agency for the purpose of bringing together fragmented efforts into a comprehensive approach to combat alcohol and other drug abuse.
Alcohol kills more kids and young people ages 18-25 than all other drugs combined. Youth ages 9-20 use it more than any other substance. An average of 2,375 people in Georgia die from alcohol-related injuries or illness each year.”
