Bernardo said the Clark Drug Alliance is a community based organization, dedicated to a comprehensive and coordinated effort to reduce and prevent illegal use of alcohol and drugs. Clark’s main focus is on alcohol abuse in minors. The Clark Municipal Alliance Committee supports the resolution of the Governor’s Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse to create a climate that rejects the use of dangerous substances and encourages the development of resources to restore a healthy lifestyle.
