Drugs & Substance Abuse

Prevention & Education

Substance abuse prevention and education programs aim to prevent individuals, particularly juveniles, from the harmful physical, social, and psychological consequences of drug and alcohol use or abuse. These programs, which may be implemented in communities, schools, faith-based settings, or the home, often seek to educate young people about the dangers posed by drugs and alcohol and change the behaviors that may lead to their abuse.
