Prevention Services

Meet Prevention Services!

Prevention Services mission is to work within our communities to encourage prevention of substance use and to foster health and wellness within the individuals, families and communities we serve through empowering and relevant evidence based educational programs.

Through our multiple work groups we are able to reach all the sectors of our community. These work groups include the Partnership For Health Drug-Free Task Force, the Positive YOUth Initiative, the Safe Communities Coalition, the Hunterdon County Youth Coalition and Prevention Education.

The Drug-Free Task Force is focused on preventing and reducing underage drinking and vaping, a division of Hunterdon County’s Partnership for Health.
