Prevention & Education

The Lawrence County Drug and Alcohol Commission, Inc. provides school- and community-based Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drugs (ATOD) prevention and education services.

In our commitment to provide quality programming, we focus on utilizing evidence-based curriculums such as Too Good for Drugs II.  Evidence-based programs are those that have been scientifically proven to produce positive outcomes.

In addition, we offer a variety of services dealing with character building issues, such as self-esteem, communication skills, and peer pressure.  We encourage and promote safe, responsible decision-making skills, as well as drug and alcohol awareness.

Additionally, we are committed to providing our community with the most current information on emerging drug trends, state and federal legislation changes, drug-free workplaces, and other related issues.

Our goal is to reduce the amount of drug and alcohol use in our community through education and risk reduction activities.

Along with Drug and Alcohol Prevention Services, we also offer educational services centered around gambling and gaming education.

Prevention/educational services include:

  • Classroom education (Grades Pre-K-12)
  • Educational programs for school personnel, businesses, community agencies, youth groups, parent groups, faith-based groups, etc.
  • Training/mentoring youth advocacy groups (i.e. Peer Leadership)
  • E3 Leadership Camp and Monthly Meetings for 8th & 9th grade students
  • Events coinciding with national and statewide campaigns (i.e. Red Ribbon, Great American Smoke-Out, Prom Promise)
