As a prevention strategy, Hooked On Fishing, Not On Drugs targets youth with a history of being at extreme risk.  It also targets youth not involved with ATODs and those that need minimal intervention.  Besides receiving court referrals, the program is a referral point for youth and families who need treatment.  It involves families of CTC’s adult clients in drug-free alternative programming and social recreational options, benefiting Cleveland Treatment Center’s adults in ATOD treatment.

Hooked On Fishing, Not On Drugs at Cleveland Treatment Center is an aquatic education, prevention and intervention program sponsored by the Ohio Division of Wildlife and the Future Fishermen Foundation.  Hooked On Fishing, Not On Drugs at Cleveland Treatment Center is also supported by grants received from The Harry K. and Emma R. Fox Charitable Foundations, the National Council of Jewish Women – Cleveland Section, the Paralyzed Veterans of America – Buckeye Chapter, The Ridgecliff Foundation, and the Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services Board of Cuyahoga County.


Hooked On Fishing, Not On Drugs” is a nationally recognized program sponsored by the Future Fisherman Foundation and is designated to provide young people with a perspective alternative to drug and alcohol use and experimentation.  The Ohio Division of Wildlife has adopted the program as a means of teaching fishing and aquatic resource education to the state’s youth.  Youth leaders who wish to learn more about the program can contact the Division of Wildlife for details on getting kids “Hooked On Fishing, Not On Drugs.”
