Prevention

Alcohol, tobacco and other drug use has serious consequences in our homes, schools, and communities every year. Millions of individuals and families are directly affected and many billions of dollars are lost as a result. But the reduction of alcohol and other drug problems in Beaufort County is a realizable goal. Scientific research has given us a much greater understanding of the development of drug-related problems allowing the design of prevention strategies that reduce levels of drug use and the attendant social and financial costs. 

We offer a range of nationally recognized, best-practice school and community-based prevention curricula and other locally developed innovative strategies to reduce the risk of chemical addiction and other problems.
