Several years ago CNOA was asked to manage the Narcotic Educational Foundation of America, also known as (NEFA). The request came from Mr. Henry Hall whose father started the Anti-Narcotic League of America in 1924 as a non-profit, educational organization. The name was changed to NEFA in 1954. Mr. Hall was the oldest active member of CNOA before his death at the age of 92, and spent his entire adult life educating the general public about the dangers of illegal drugs and drug abuse.
As CNOA continues to manage NEFA, the tradition of educating children about the dangers of drug abuse will live on. NEFA provides free drug abuse information to any parent, teacher, or member of the community who has questions or concerns about the dangers of controlled substance abuse.
Due to the ever-changing drug trends in America, providing up-to-date information has always been a priority, as well as a great challenge. NEFA researchers continue to review the overwhelming amount of educational information available, and sharing the most dynamic and objective information with our members and the general public. You can contact our NEFA office to find out how you can have an experienced speaker come to your school, civic group, or other recognized groups.
The Foundation provides information/training for our members and other law enforcement personnel in the area of drug enforcement issues. This helps to prepare them for the professional tasks they are confronted with daily. NEFA and CNOA also take pride in the relationship we have with the youth in our communities. In memory of Henry Hall and his lifetime work, NEFA has initiated an Annual Video Contest for California youth between the ages of 10 and 14 in two categories - an individual or recognized youth organization or educational group (i.e. school class, Boys or Girls Club, sports team, Fine Arts group etc.) throughout California. The Video Contest theme "Say No to Drugs" has an emphasis on the dangers of drug abuse.

Since 1924, the Narcotic Educational Foundation of America (NEFA) has been committed to educating the public on the dangers of illegal drugs and drug abuse. Previously established as the "Anti-Narcotic League", the Narcotic Educational Foundation of America was one of the first to produce anti-drug information, including films such as "The Assassin of Youth" and "The Dangerous Drugs". A lot of things have changed over the past 50+ years since these movies were filmed, but the messages still hold true today!
NEFA has compiled a DVD with both "The Assassin of Youth" and "The Dangerous Drugs" and for a limited time, we will send you a copy with every donation of $20.00 or more! All proceeds will go directly to the Narcotic Educational Foundation of America (NEFA).
Thank you for your support.
