Prevention Services are programs directed at individuals who may be at risk of developing a substance use disorder but have not been determined to require treatment for a substance use disorder. Prevention service programs include strategies and initiatives which reduce both direct and indirect adverse personal, social, health, and economic consequences resulting from problematic alcohol and drug availability, manufacture, distribution, promotion, sales, and use. The desired result is to promote safe and healthy behaviors and environments for individuals, families and our community.
