Youth Prevention of Alcohol, Cannabis, Prescription Drugs and Tobacco Use
SUSTAINABLE PREVENTION OF SUBSTANCE MISUSE IN RUTLAND COUNTY VERMONT
We’re a community network that addresses the risks of alcohol and other drug misuse and promotes healthy lifestyles.
How we’re making a difference:
Provide community education, parenting programs, and youth leadership opportunities.
Partner with retailers to prevent underage drinking and smoking.
Promote safe ways to get rid of unused prescription drugs, increase drop-off locations and help people find the closest location.
Support community forums that bring people together to talk about the challenges of substance misuse and how to create healthy communities.
Partners for Prevention and this website have been made possible through funding by the Regional Prevention Partnerships of Rutland.
“Treatment without prevention is simply unsustainable.”
