Prevention ServicesPrevention Services empower community agencies and groups as well as individuals and families to make healthy and positive choices. These services provide information, build skills, foster positive attitudes, and create community conditions that prevent or ameliorate sundry problems. Services are designed to encourage and support constructive, drug-free performance in peer, family, school, and community settings.
Services are planned and developed with substantial input from the community. These services are provided to groups and individuals in schools, at other community sites, in homes, to the community at large, and at our offices.
Among the topics addressed by our prevention workers are the following:
- Underage drinking
- Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
- Adolescent drug use
