October is Substance Abuse Prevention Month
This October marks the annual National Substance Abuse Prevention Month - an observance to highlight the vital role of substance abuse prevention in both individual and community health and to remember those who have lost their lives to alcohol and drugs. Prevention strategies targeting the root of the problem are essential to curb drug use and help people lead healthier lives. The Teen Health Connection Youth Drug Free Coalition and Teen Advisory Board continue to work to prevent underage drinking and prescription drug misuse for teens in this community. Our team invites you to take the pledge to prevent substance use and to get involved in our efforts.
