What is prevention?

Simply put, substance use prevention is the idea of empowering teens to stay substance free until adulthood. We do this through supporting you while you find your passions, encouraging you to hold leadership positions, and encouraging you to belong to something bigger than yourself!
This isn’t your typical “don’t do drugs” speech. We believe you, as a teen, have all the skills you need to make healthy choices. Our programs believe in the power of fun, and conversation. Instead of adults coming in and telling you what to do, teens work together to gain new knowledge and friends who encourage them to be their best selves.
