Prevention Services

The goal of GLRC’s prevention services is to eliminate or at least reduce risk-taking behaviors, minimizing occurrences of substance abuse and the need for treatment services. We use evidence based programs and best practices that research has shown to be effective. We involve youth and families in healthy, life-skill building activities and substance abuse prevention education in order to increase their ability to recognize and cope with potentially harmful situations and relationships.
