Community Activities

  We are working with our local, state and regional partners to assist our Essex County communities to provide safe, healthy environments that promote positive choices for our children, families and for all community members.

Teen alcohol and other drug use is a community problem – all sectors of our community need to work together – law enforcement, school staff, parents and grandparents, faith leaders, agency staff, civic groups, youth and all concerned residents to:

    - make each of our community environments UNFRIENDLY to teen alcohol and other drug use,

     - create and support community environments where teens feel valued and included and where teens feel supported and encouraged to make healthy choices.
