Prevention Services

Prevention is about so much more than just saying, “No.”

We believe that providing equal access to basic needs is critical to the overall health of our town. Our nationally-recognized prevention work relies on a variety of immersive programming that provides youth with valuable support and opportunities for building positive relationships. Kids who are confident, informed, and supported by their peers, as well as their families, are less likely to abuse substances and engage in high-risk behaviors.

The result? A strong and vibrant community that prioritizes the health of our next generation.

Stay connected.
