Canton Alliance Against Substance Abuse


The Canton Alliance Against Substance Abuse (CAASA) was established in 2013 to address youth substance abuse. CAASA consists of a diverse representation of invested community partners who are representatives from Public Health, the Schools, Fire Rescue, Police, Parks and Recreation, Norfolk County DA’s office, students, clinicians, and parents. Our collaboration allows for a 360 degree perspective on the issues affecting Canton and how best to address them.
