Prevent Substance Use Before It Begins!
In 2011, President Obama issued the first-ever Presidential Proclamation designating October as National Substance Abuse Prevention Month.  The tradition continues in 2014 as parents, youth, schools and community leaders across the country join this month-long observance of the role that prevention plays in promoting safe and healthy communities.  As the Proclamation states:  "Preventing substance abuse before it begins is the most effective way to eliminate the damage caused by drugs and the abuse of alcohol."  Take appropriate action to promote prevention activities in your community.  

To learn more about prevention, visit The Council's website  or call our Prevention Department at 215-230-8218.
