We serve the tri-state area. Our Center for Prevention Action (CPA) works to create positive community change to reduce alcohol, tobacco, and other substance use/misue. PreventionFIRST! recognizes that a community is made up of individuals connected and engaged in shared social, cultural, political, and economic circumstances. CPA supports youth, schools, communities, parents, faith-based organizations, and systems in identifying and implementing prevention strategies that strengthen policies, encourage asset development, provide accurate information, positively modify the environment, and encourage healthy behaviors and attitutes – all evidence based approaches to substance use/misue prevention. CPA strives to create community change, provide training and support, and raise public awareness.

PreventionFIRST! also has two other centers – Center for Community Engagement and Center for Prevention Science. See our website for more information.
