Municipal Alliance


The Municipal Alliance sponsors a variety of "Natural High Events" for children, families, and all residents throughout the year. These events offer wonderful opportunities for the community to come together in a drug/alcohol free setting.

The Alliance helps to sponsor LEAD (formerly DARE), holds programs on current issues including underage drinking, vaping, drug abuse, cyber bullying, and gangs for both students and parents. They also offer Narcan training for school staff and residents throughout the year. They offer training for liquor stores and restaurants regarding ID checks and over serving. They participate annually in Knock Out Opioid Day with information going out to our doctors, dentists and pharmacies regarding prescription abuse. They offer information to seniors regarding prescription safety and disposal.  

The Alliance also supports "Project Graduation" for Morris Hills High School students. This event is a drug and alcohol-free night for seniors who wish to celebrate sober.
