Community Education

It is often noted that our country’s problem with substance abuse is not a national problem, but a series of unique community problems.

Experience has shown that some of the most innovative and effective approaches to dealing with adolescent drug and alcohol problems begin at the community level. Change is created or substantially adapted at grassroots initiatives through community partnerships among key stakeholders — parents, community leaders, law enforcement, prevention and treatment professionals and educators.

Our Community Education programs provide:

* Helpful tips for parents talking to their children and steps to take if their child is using

* Information about specific drug threats, risk and protective factors, warning signs of use

* Training for collaborative community partnerships to build new programs — or enhance and supplement local efforts — at no cost to the community.

* Research-based tools
