Welcome to the Meth Action Coalition



The Meth Action Coalition (MAC) is a grassroots organization in Central Oregon comprised of local citizens, business professionals, treatment professionals, and government agencies who have come together to fight the scourge of meth, and other drugs in our community. The Coalition grew out of a very successful Meth Summit, held at St. Charles Medical Center in November 2003, and was strengthened by subsequent summits in June 2005, June 2007, and December 2009 Nearly 400 people attended each session.

Since the Coalition's inception, great strides have been made in the fight against meth. Through the efforts of law enforcement, treatment providers and prevention educators, meth use has declined in Deschutes County. The battle is not over, however. Meth is still in circulation and continues to destroy individual lives, families, and endanger the community. The Oregonian has reported that Oregon meth-related deaths in 2013 were at all all-time high. Click here to see the article.

The Meth Action Coalition is helping decrease Meth, and other drug use, through prevention and awareness education in Deschutes County schools. Since 2008, we have given our Meth 101 presentation to over 11,000 students.

We appreciate your generous contribution to help us continue our work in educating young people about the life long damage that can result from drug use.
