  • Partnering with schools and businesses to have strong substance abuse policies.
  • Educating parents about dangers of underage drinking, marijuana and prescription drug use - and prevention strategies.
  • Hosting community forums on substance abuse prevention.
  • Providing state approved Responsible Beverage Service trainings for local businesses.
  • Collaborating with local law enforcement to prevent underage and high risk drinking, and increasing public awareness of dangers of prescription drugs and marijuana misuse.
  • Facilitating a broad coalition of people from community sectors such as schools, businesses, youth organizations, parents, faith communities, law enforcement, local and county government, healthcare systems, civic groups and volunteers -- to coordinate and implement proven prevention strategies that decrease youth substance use and abuse.
