Alcohol & Drug Prevention Program
Marion County Substance Abuse Prevention Program uses the science of prevention
to support our communities in preventing abuse of alcohol and other
substances. We collaborate with
community based organizations (CBOs), health care systems, neighborhood groups,
schools, businesses and other organizations and individuals with an interest in
preventing the incidence of drug and alcohol abuse in the community.
The program encompasses a variety of activities, including:
- Technical assistance, policy development, and staff training for schools.
- Support of evidence-based prevention curriculum and related staff training in schools.
- Technical assistance for community groups and schools in applying prevention research, program and project development, project evaluation, and grant writing.
- Dissemination of educational resources and materials for substance abuse prevention and treatment services.
- Facilitation of the Marion County Substance Use Coalition and other collaborative efforts to address substance use in the community.
- Participation in the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) development and implementation of substance use-related strategies.
- Seeking funding opportunities to enhance substance abuse prevention efforts.
- Coordination with other Marion County prevention services to address substance abuse.
- Programs and training opportunities as they arise.
