School Based Prevention

What Is Prevention?



Prevention is defined as action taken to prevent individuals from using alcohol, tobacco, marijuana or other drugs by implementing programming and services which primarily targets school-aged youth but also includes parents, school, and community.

In Chester County, prevention services consist of age appropriate school-based and community-based programs, education and awareness on Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug (ATOD) topics, identification and referral of students at risk, and information and referral related to prevention, treatment and recovery services for community members.
