Freehold Alliance to Prevent Substance Abuse
The Freehold Municipal Alliance, established in 1990, exists to meet the need for comprehensive, coordinated substance abuse awareness planning and programming for the residents of Freehold Township and Freehold Borough. The Alliance is a network of community leaders, private citizens and representatives from public and private human service agencies.
