An Innovated and and Empowered Community with Resources to Promote Well Being
Develop and promote a more positive and safe environment for the Dixie County youth as well as young adults and adults. By educating on the danger of alcohol and other drugs and by uniting people and services to assist in the prevention effort.
WHAT WE DO
First, we gather data about drug use and consequences in our community, primarily where the issue affects the youth. Then, using this data along with surveys, focus groups and interviews, we determine which community risk factors can be reduced and which protective factors can be increased. We do not enforce drug laws or address individual drug use, but instead work to make changes within the community that would make drug use less likely, accessible, or socially acceptable.
Some of the main ways that we accomplish our goals
educating Dixie residents on the dangers and consequences of drug use
increasing awareness of non-drug alternatives
connecting people with the resources and services they need to stay healthy
encouraging policies that aim to reduce drug access in the community
promoting social norms that favor health, wellness and sobriety
