Who We Are

Fauquier CADRE, Inc. (Community Alliance for Drug Rehabilitation and Education) was established in 1989 and is a coalition of community agencies, groups and individuals who share a common concern: prevention/intervention in the area of youth substance use. Our Board of Directors consists of community leaders, including those from youth-serving agencies and nonprofits, the judicial system, and substance abuse treatment service providers. Our message is positive. By getting involved in the lives of our youth as a community, we can give them the safety net they deserve – the chance to grow into adulthood with a sense of control over the things they face. CADRE believes that every young person has the right to a safe and healthy environment.  CADRE also believes that the illegal use of tobacco, alcohol and other drugs is everyone’s concern and requires a uniform response from all citizens. Since its beginning, CADRE has supported the community by providing classroom and general assembly guest speakers for the schools and youth organizations, delivering the Too Good For Drugs curriculum to independent schools and after school programs, provided drug prevention literature and materials at various public events, and worked with other youth serving nonprofits on community wide issues. Kathleen Weghorst is CADRE's Executive Director/Prevention Specialist. Below is the list of our current Board of Directors.

Through a grant from PATH Foundation, Faquier CADRE, Inc. launched a new program called Lock Your Meds sponsored by the National Family Partnership (creators of Red Ribbon Week). Lock Your Meds educates families about the need to keep prescription and over-the-counter medications locked away in a safe location at home. According to SAMHSA, "66% of people 12 and older who abuse prescription drugs get them from family or friends and they think these drugs are safe."
