OCCHY is a unique national alliance founded and supported by the Department of Youth and Parish Ministries of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese. We are establishing, training and leading substance abuse prevention and intervention coalitions across America.


  • Address factors that increase the dangers associated with underage drinking, binge drinking, prescription medication abuse, tobacco use, illegal drug use, and other substance use and abuse.
  • Establish and maintain collaborative efforts among community members within local, state, government and non-profit agencies to address the issues of drug use and actively work to reduce problems associated with substance abuse.

 In addition, Orthodox Christian Coalitions:

  • Address Righteous Living
  • Promote Healthy Sexuality
  • Address the Issue of Bullying
  • Encourage Respect for the Sanctity of the Human Body
  • Work to Build Strong Leaders in Body, Mind and Spirit
