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.

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.
