SUDDs (Stop Underage Drinking/Drugs Downriver) Coalition

The SUDDs vision is for a community where youth, parents, and others are educated about underage drinking and parents and peers are not enablers, a community where there are fewer alcohol related accidents and drug related conflicts and vendors comply with existing laws.

We aim to:

  • educate community members about the consequences of underage drinking and other drug use and alcohol/drug related traffic crashes and fatalities
  • inform community, especially parents, of new drug trends, including the rise of prescription drug use among teens.
  • collaborate with other agencies, organizations and grass-root efforts to prevent and reduce substance abuse.
  • network with community officials
  • educate alcohol and tobacco vendors
  • research city and national policies related to underage drinking
  • participate in community service


The SUDDs Coalition meets every third Thursday of the month at 8:30 am at The Guidance Center on 13111 Allen Road (Building 2) in Southgate. Meetings are open to all members of the community. For more information contact us at 734-785-7705 x7025 or 734-643-9932.
