Helping Youth Navigate Life's Challenges
Addiction is a disease with huge human and monetary costs in every aspect of our society. But it is also a preventable and treatable disease. Preventing young people from using substances at an early age pays huge dividends on many fronts, including avoiding delinquency, violence, and the criminal justice system.
The Prevention Council has worked for over 30 years to give young people the skills to choose healthy behaviors, provide families with the tools to foster positive child development, help communities build family-friendly environments, and help schools build supportive climates for students
