Supporting Healthy Lifestyles

Our goal is to prevent future generations from suffering the problems related to substance use and the disease of addiction. This community-based prevention model utilizes community teams, task forces and coalitions of volunteers throughout the state. Our team of prevention specialists provides technical assistance to the coalitions by helping them conduct the following:

The prevention specialists strive to stay abreast of current trends and research on substance abuse prevention. These professionals are able to provide coalitions with necessary information to create effective programs. The prevention specialists are also available as resources for schools, churches and other community organizations interested in addressing issues of substance abuse prevention. To help promote a better understanding of substance abuse and other mental health issues, we have programs that are available to schools and communities.

Prevention is a proactive process which empowers individuals and organizations to meet the challenges of life events and transition by creating and reinforcing healthy behaviors and lifestyles, reducing the risks of alcohol, tobacco and other drug use and related issues. Prevention Specialists are available to counties in northern Missouri and western Kansas to promote the health and well-being of communities through substance abuse and suicide prevention.
