Adults & Communities

Adult & Community Programs

Adults and community members can benefit from a range of programs available through The Prevention Council. Forums, sessions and other programs work to inform members of the community about the importance of educating children, teenagers and young adults about the dangers of drugs, alcohol and tobacco use, while other courses can help intervene in the lives of those who have problems with substance abuse to help them make healthier, positive choices. Learn about the full range of our programs below.

Parent Awareness Forums

A partnership between parents and schools, these forums work to decrease underage drinking.

Project Sticker Shock

Project Sticker Shock works to inform the community about the penalties and risks of providing alcohol to minors.

SafeHomes

The SafeHomes campaign works to foster a home environment that instills in children that drug use is unacceptable. 

Strengthening Families

The Strengthening Families Program (SFP) is a national model and is the first research-based parenting program specifically designed for parents (with children ages six to 14 years old) working to overcome substance abuse.

Fetal Alcohol & Drug effects

Fetal Alcohol & Drug Effects (FADE) programs offer a positive approach to meeting the challenges of prenatal exposure to alcohol and other drugs. Please contact us directly for program information. 

Focus on Consequences - Adult Program

Our adult program serves people age 21 or older. For many, a brief intervention can initiate a process of self-reflection conducive to behavioral change.

Public Education & Advocacy

The Prevention Council provides a variety of Public Education & Advocacy programs and presentations geared toward the classroom, non-profit agencies and the workplace.

Coalitions

The Prevention Council works with communities to establish and sustain drug free coalitions. Coalition members are taught how to legislate change in their communities, contribute to Sticker Shock, host Town Hall Meetings, provide opportunities to develop leadership skills for youth, and build healthy environments.

 

Focus on Consequences Adolescent Program

Our adolescent program provides a brief educational intervention for those 14–21 years old using motivational interviewing and through follow ups for continued client support.
