Contra Costa Alcohol & Other Drugs Advisory Board Seeks New Members

Monday, July 9, 2018


The Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) Advisory Board seeks applicants to fill several open seats. The board is comprised of 18 volunteers, appointed by the Contra Costa Board of Supervisors, who assess community needs regarding prevention, treatment and recovery from alcohol and drug abuse.

The AOD Board reports findings and recommendations to Contra Costa Health Services, the Board of Supervisors and community partners.


Applicants must be 16 or older and live in Contra Costa County. We currently seek applicants from District 5 and for at-large seats.


Members must attend a meeting on the fourth Wednesday of each month from 4 p.m. to 6:15 p.m., and are also expected to serve on one or more committees, which also meet monthly. Meeting times and locations vary to encourage participation from various segments of the community. Members usually serve three-year terms.


AOD offers its volunteers the opportunity to directly address substance abuse in Contra Costa by helping local government develop and improve policies regarding drugs and alcohol. The AOD Board produces an annual report and selects recipients for the annual People Who Make a Difference awards.
