Providing a firm foundation and clear ideas on the damage addiction can cause is critical to teenage substance abuse prevention efforts. The goal of prevention is to attempt to stop someone from partaking in a harmful action that has substantial consequences before those consequences occur. In the case of teenage substance abuse, this can range from stopping them from taking drinks of alcohol, to more dangerous drugs like cocaine or fentanyl.
The Alliance’s mission is to enhance and support the capacity of local Alliances (member coalitions) in their prevention and youth development work. Over 100 local coalitions are members of the Alliance.
