Marshfield Area Coalition for Youth (MACY) is working to make Marshfield the best place to raise a family. Formed in 1990, MACY is currently striving to reduce and prevent underage drinking, prescription drug abuse and heroin use by Marshfield youth. The coalition’s work is supported by Marshfield Clinic Center for Community Outreach and over 200 members representing over 30 organizations in Marshfield.
MACY is a member of Northwoods Coalition, the oldest and largest network of substance abuse prevention coalitions in Wisconsin. Members gather together to help shape plans and processes addressing alcohol, tobacco and other substance use.
Currently MACY focuses on reducing underage drinking, prescription drug abuse, heroin use and marijuana use and youth mental health disparities among youth ages 12-17.
