Collaborating to Prevent Substance Misuse
WE CONTINUE TO WORK TOGETHER TO PREVENT SUBSTANCE MISUSE & PROMOTE HEALTHY FAMILIES.
Our strategies are to increase awareness and engage the community in managing medications for themselves and their families; provide education regarding the negative impact and influence of substance misuse; enhancing’s skills of community leaders, parents, educators, and our youth through training in evidence-based practices and programs that are proven to be effective in reducing the early onset of substance use.

Overdose Prevention Education and Naloxone Training: Parents and residetns learn to administer Naloxone as a lifesaving tool when faced with an opiate/heroin overdose.
