Floyd Against Drugs
Floyd Against Drugs is a community based organization bringing awareness to all of Floyd County, Georgia.
Our Mission is to mobilize the entire community to reduce the use of drugs, tobacco and underage drinking in Rome and Floyd County.
FAD is a nonprofit 501 (c) 3 organization founded in 2000. Its members are volunteers from all sectors of the community. In October 2015 FAD began receiving a federal SAMSHA grant and hired an Executive Director, Dan Falcitelli. Dan is a native Georgian from Roswell, Ga. He has spent 25 years in law enforcement, 10 years with local and state law enforcement and 15 years with the FBI. During his work Dan has seen the devastating effects of drugs on individuals, families, and communities.
FAD works collaboratively with social service agencies, local law enforcement agencies, and other non-profit organizations on drug abuse issues. With the assistance of grant funding, FAD began to work on environmental strategies within our community. There have been SAFE AND SOBER PROM CAMPAIGNS, MARIJUANA CAMPAIGN, AND STICKER SHOCK CAMPAIGNS.
Some of FAD's past activities have included nationally recognized speakers to the community and local schools, participation in the Teen Maze, Table Talk, Men's and Women's Health Fairs, Town Hall meetings, drug drops, and Red Ribbon Month activities in October. FAD has used funds from their Murder Mystery Dinner and Silent Auction and donations to purchase K-9 ballistic vests and drug goggles.
Last October FAD delivered items with drug free messages to over 17,000 PK - 12th grade students in celebration of Red Ribbon Week.
