Welcome to Drug Free Charlotte County

Drug Free Charlotte County, established in 2000, serves the Charlotte County region of Southwest Florida, encompassing Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda and Englewood. We are a cohesive, collaborative coalition, consisting of: Youth • Parents • Schools • Law Enforcement • Business Community • Media • Youth-Serving Organizations • Retailers • Faith-Based Community • Civic and Volunteer Groups • Health-Care Professionals • Government Agencies • Chamber(s) of Commerce • and other organizations involved in reducing substance abuse.


Our success is due to the diverse community partnerships from across Charlotte County who have united together to reinforce the healthy choices of our youth and build a healthy, drug free community.


Drug Free Charlotte welcomes all volunteers — adults and youth — come join us in preventing substance abuse in Charlotte County.
