How Do We Serve Our Communities?
We serve our communities by providing alcohol, marijuana, prescription drugs and other drugs (AOD) data for schools, Colleges and Universities, or other community events that your agency may be hosting. This done through Information Dissemination which provides awareness and knowledge of Alcohol, Tobacco, Other drugs abuse, and issues and trends through the data collected by the central data repository.
Our Community-Based Process aids the community to more effectively provide "TIPS" (Treatment, Intervention and Prevention Services) for AOD problems through community mobilization, collaboration, coalition building, networking and community empowerment efforts.
Through Environmental and Social Policy, we aim to influence the incidence and prevalence of AOD in the general population by establishing and/or changing written and unwritten standards, codes and attitudes within the community. This strategy also aims to combat substance abuse and related harms with concerted, community-based and comprehensive efforts change norms, behaviors, systems and comtexts that contribute to substance abuse problems in our communities (CADCA).
