Who We Are

McLeod Education and Drug Awareness (MEADA) Coalition of McLeod County was developed to educate youth, families, and citizens on the dangers of drugs with a focus on methamphetamine.

This coalition was started on August 17, 2005. Since that time, MEADA has created the Battle of The Bands annual event at the McLeod County Fair, Zero Adult Provider and Take It To The Box Medication Disposal Program. The coalition has also organized and sponsored presentations regarding methamphetamine use, prescription drug abuse and synthetic designer drugs. MEADA also arranged a MADD Victim Impact Panel and sponsored Dr. Victor DeNoble who presented on how drugs impact a person’s brain, to over 5,000 people in McLeod County. MEADA will maintain a focus on all mood-altering chemicals and will continue to educate McLeod County regarding the affects of drug and alcohol use.

MEADA is a non-profit 501(c) (3) and keeps providing to McLeod County by grants and donations.
