Think Free

With the help of our community partners, NWATDFC is working to reduce the tobacco burden in Arkansas.

Improving Our Quality Of Life

We’re working to improve the quality of life for Arkansans by mitigating the health and economic impact of alcohol, tobacco and drug usage through education, prevention, cessation, and public policy.

Alcohol Abuse

According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism nearly 88,000 people die from alcohol-related causes annually, making it the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States.

You're In Control

We believe everyone has the right to make informed decisions concerning their health and the negative impact of alcohol, tobacco and drugs.
