Our substance use prevention educational services (a/k/a Annual Red Ribbon Campaign) aims to decrease risk factors and increase protective factors by improving pro-social attitudes, increasing understanding of the consequences of substance use, teaching critical social life skills and improving substance use knowledge.  Social life skills applications will include lessons on decision-making, stress-management skills, communication skills, goal setting, substance use refusal skills, and assertiveness skills. Please review the below websites and enclosed info pamphlets for additional health information.
