What We Do...

Turning Interest Into Action



Since 2003, National DEC has provided training and technical assistance to thousands of professionals to better recognize the risks faced by drug endangered children and develop effective responses. We hold a national conference, host professional development webinars, and deliver training all around the country. 



Our DEC alliances around the country are the cornerstone of the national drug endangered children efforts and we are committed to building and sustaining our national network. We provide leadership, strategic planning, training and technical assistance to our alliances.

We are proud to work alongside law enforcement, prosecutors, social services, medical personnel, treatment providers, prevention experts, probation and corrections, first responders, teachers and many more. We believe that all professionals who have the opportunity to identify children suffering from neglect and abuse should be trained to work collaboratively. With support from individuals, corporate partners, foundations, and governmental agencies, National DEC provides program assistance to communities across the nation.
