The Alliance of Coalitions for Healthy Communities (ACHC), in partnership with IBH Analytics received the Coalition of Excellence Award for Long-term Outcomes from CADCA

Dr. Lubbers, CEO of IBH Analytics, has worked with the Alliance of Coalitions for Healthy Communities (ACHC) since its founding. IBH Analytics plays a major role supporting ACHC's programs with strong evaluative analytics.

In 2018 that work was recognized as ACHC, in partnership with IBH Analytics received the Coalition of Excellence Award for Long-term Outcomes from CADCA (Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America), the nation’s leading substance abuse prevention organization. The Coalition of Excellence award is part of CADCA’s GOT OUTCOMES! award program, which gives national recognition to exemplary coalitions that have clearly documented their impact on population-level substance abuse outcomes.

ACHC and IBH Analytics received this prestigious award on Feb. 7 during CADCA’s 2019 National Leadership Forum at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland. CADCA’s National Leadership Forum is the nation’s largest training event for community coalition advocates and substance abuse prevention leaders, featuring more than 100 sessions on the latest science, news, trends and industry best practices on substance abuse issues.

“We are truly honored to receive this award,” said Julie Brenner, ACHC President and CEO. “Our success truly hinges on the impressive efforts of our dedicated team, network of coalitions, partnerships and Board of Directors who make it a priority to increase prevention efforts in our county and across the state.”

Coalitions who utilize a holistic, multi-sector approach are able to engage the entire community, achieve sustainable outcomes and truly change social norms relative to substance use and misuse.

“We congratulate the ACHC on their outstanding work and the long-term outcomes they have achieved in their community. Through their hard work, ACHC achieved a reduction in past 30-day use reports by 85% from 2008 to 2018 among youth in Oakland County, as well as a reduction in students binge drinking at high school parties,” said General Arthur T. Dean, CADCA’s Chairman and CEO.
