Partners In Prevention
Research shows preventing drug use before it begins is the most cost-effective, common-sense approach to promoting safe and healthy communities. Prevention results in better academic performance among teens who don't use drugs, fewer auto accidents from reduced drugged driving, and more productive workplaces due to lower absenteeism. Preventing drug use also lowers HIV transmission rates due to decreased injection drug use, creates safer home environments for children previously considered drug endangered, and revitalizes neighborhoods due to coalition-based efforts. Simply put, drug prevention saves lives and cuts costs. Below is a listing of local agencies, businesses, schools and other non-profits with a shared vision for a safer, healthier community.
