The Community Prevention Division offers evidence based programs, training and strategies to schools, parents and community organizations that are outcome based and empower all segments of a community to be actively engaged in changing their environments.
Our goal is to help create ‘prevention prepared’ communities in order to stop substance abuse before it starts. As you know, substance abuse does not discriminate and no one is immune to the effects. Therefore, it is essential that we arm our families, schools and work environments with the most current information and tools to help keep our community’s drug free.
This Division is the home of the Union County Health and Wellness Coalition (HAWC) as well as many of Prevention Links traditional community engagement programs.
