Prevention Services

Areas Serviced: Broward and Miami-Dade

This program serves adolescents and young adults, ranging from 13 to 20. Our young adult component helps them achieve competency in the skills that not only are key to success but also have been found to reduce and prevent substance use and violence, therefore enriching their lives in the process. The individuals participate in a group setting with their peers to help prevent alcohol and drug problems. Using effective and evidence-based practices they learn the life skills necessary to become alcohol-free, abstain from marijuana, and abstain from prescription drug us.

The Prevention Department serves students through the public school system, universities, trade schools, and youth involved in the juvenile justice, foster care systems as well as community organizations.
