ABOUT THE NOCC
The North Oakland Community Coalition supports the Lake Orion and Oxford community by promoting mental and physical health for all, free of alcohol and substance misuse, through educational programs, collaborative partnerships, and endless faith in community spirit.
Established in 2007, the NOCC provides critical education and programs related to underage drinking, youth substance use, and mental health to encourage a responsible community where healthy decision making is valued and where individuals and families thrive.
As one of our nation’s Drug Free Communities coalitions, we utilize the Strategic Prevention Framework as a guide in identifying, planning, and evaluating the programs and activities that create the biggest impact on the health and safety of our youth.
We value our relationships with key partners in the Lake Orion community. Collaboration is the key to whole-community wellness. The NOCC’s goal is to gather input and combine resources from every sector of our community to ensure mental health and substance misuse prevention remain a priority for the residents of Lake Orion.
