In 1968 a physician, a pharmacist and a police officer came together to respond to a growing substance abuse problem in their community. They gave their time, effort and money and founded an organization that has changed lives for more than 4 decades now. As a result of their commitment and desire to make a difference in the lives of people seeking help, Drug Abuse Foundation was born.

The spirit of community service became the guiding principle for the Foundation as it responded to the problem of drugs throughout the past three decades. This spirit is embodied in the long-term commitment, support and leadership provided by individuals like former Mayor of Delray Beach, Leon M. Weekes, Ernest G. Simon, Esq., Richard Siemens, and Frank Carey. The Foundationís history of successful community service cannot be told without paying tribute to these individuals.

In 1991 the Foundation opened the first public campus dedicated to the prevention and treatment of substance abuse in Palm Beach County. Named in honor of tennis legend Chris Evert and life director of the Foundation, Richard Siemens, the Siemens-Evert Comprehensive Service Campus strives to meet the changing needs of this community.

Our continuum of care is based upon a balanced, client centered service strategy. The Foundation seeks to provide every client with the best opportunity to achieve a successful outcome.
