What is Prevention?
The Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) defines prevention in the following way:
Center for Humanistic Change provides educational and informational programs to prevent substance abuse. Programs include: life skills for adults and youth, parenting education, violence prevention, alternative activities for teens and education targeted to avert drug and alcohol involvement. Programs and trainings are offered in the schools and community as classroom programs, small groups and one-time presentations. All center programs have one goal - to provide life skills training and education for healthy living.
