Working in partnership with key policymakers, the provider network, individuals, families and communities we strive to create and promote a Prevention Framework that supports safe and healthy environments. The framework that has evolved to date is both comprehensive and research-based.
The actual delivery of prevention services in New York state is effected through a system consisting of some 180 providers operating in a variety of settings, including schools, community-based organizations and embedded in the community at large. The providers deliver a wide range of services including evidence-based education programs, skills development workshops, training sessions for parents, teachers, and other professionals, positive alternative activities for youth and policy change and enforcement efforts to reduce underage drinking.
