INNER CITY ALCOHOL AND DRUG PREVENTION COMMISSION
The purpose of the Community ATOD Prevention Project is to reduce ATOD abuse among school students, provide enhanced intervention services, and effectively take the ATOD prevention message to the community.
Substance abuse by children will be addressed through an educational outreach into the community's schools. The ATOD Commission and the school district have partnered for a vigorous and ongoing in-school effort.
Intervention services will be enhanced with a 24-hour hotline and 24-7 crisis teams. Trained hotline operators and crisis team members will apply experience-proven intervention techniques to solve problems.
Performance art will be used to dramatically and effectively publicize the substance abuse prevention message to the community. A troupe of performance artists will perform publicly throughout the community to dramatize the message against substance abuse.
