Prevention Education supports the health and wellness of individuals, families, and the communities we serve by providing evidence based programs which empower people to make good decisions to live happy, healthy lives.
We inform individuals and groups of all ages on a myriad of subjects including substance use and abuse, life skills, and interpersonal dynamics.
Our educators engage the audience with developmentally appropriate lessons and activities which impart knowledge and real time tools to achieve positive outcomes.
