CCENDU (Canadian Community Epidemiology Network on Drug Use) was established in 1995 after a feasibility study was conducted that identified a need for a Canada-wide surveillance system on substance abuse. In November 2002, the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse (CCSA) received funding from the National Crime Prevention Centre to develop and document a model for community response to substance abuse and establish community partnerships. The Safe Community Coalition of Brockville & District took the opportunity to participate in this national epidemiology study and received a $20,000 grant from the CCSA for the CCENDU/HEP Community Action Project. HEP (Health, Education, and Enforcement in Partnership) is the "action" part of the project. Based on research findings, an effective action plan will be developed to effectively address substance abuse in the community through collaborations involving key community partners.
