Prevention/School Based Prevention

What Is Prevention?
Prevention is action taken to prevent youth from using alcohol, tobacco, or illicit drugs. Prevention primarily targets children but also includes parents, school, and community. Prevention targets all forms of drug abuse, including tobacco, alcohol, marijuana, inhalants and other drugs. Prevention needs to begin early, and be age appropriate, and long term.
