Prevention

Preventing drug and alcohol abuse before it begins is our main goal at the Palm Beach County Substance Awareness Coalition.

How do we do this?

We have to get everyone – teens, parents, grandparents – engaged in creating and supporting an environment that celebrates successes of youth and adults, encourages positive choices, and reduces risky behaviors of those we care about.

Across Palm Beach County, a strong network of organizations is helping us do that.  

These groups are working in schools, community centers, and in homes to educate teens, parents and all other adults about the dangers of using drugs and alcohol. Here are some of our many prevention partners:

Big Brother Big Sisters of Palm Beach and Martin Counties, Inc.

Drug Abuse Foundation

Drug Abuse Treatment Association

Hanley Center Foundation

Mothers Against Drunk Drivers, South Florida

NOPE Task Force

Palm Beach County School District, Safe and Drug Free Schools

Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office

Living Skills in the Schools

We can all do our share, too.

For teen, it’s Ok to talk to your parents and other positive adults in your life about issues and feelings you may be having that may make you consider using drugs and alcohol as a way to cope with challenges with your life.

And everyone can benefit from something as simple as having dinner together as a family. According to the FamilyDinnerProject.org: Dinner is a time to relax, recharge, laugh, tell stories and catch up on the day’s ups and downs, while developing a sense of who we are as a family.To learn more about Palm Beach County family dinner events, click here.

And at the kitchen table and elsewhere, look for ways to create positive conversations focused on education, career choices, and having a successful future.
 
That’s how we build a stronger community.
