Substance Abuse Prevention Services are town-wide services intended to reduce the harmful effects of drugs and alcohol use on the community. Prevention staff act as the liaison for various departments and committees in town. Residents can utilize support groups, assessments, referrals for treatment programs, and other consultation, as needed. Additionally, educational activities, events, and forums will be available to increase awareness of substance use in the community.
