Pursuing freedom & healing from addiction. At all costs.

Fighting Addiction Face To Face.

We Are Addiction Prevention Coalition.

There is one thing we all share in common; Struggle. It is indeed the most common trait between people of all ages, genders, races, and backgrounds. Though our circumstances may differ, we are all beheld to the gravity of life’s challenges. Often times, we become ashamed of our struggle or we feel overwhelmed by what seems to be insurmountable obstacles. We seek answers and solutions. and at times, we simply seek to escape. Consequently, some turn away from connection with others and community--into the darkness of isolation, and despair.

“Addiction is not a moral failing. It is a chronic illness that must be treated with skill, urgency and compassion.” - Vivek Murthy, U.S. Surgeon General

Awareness

Awareness communicates information about substance use disorder, helps break the stigma of getting help early, and offers hope that recovery is possible. Awareness is the first step to invoking change.

Our vision is to prevent substance abuse and relapse by inspiring and educating people to live with hope, resilience and purpose.

We will continue to lead the way as a convener of organizations united to prevent addiction and relapse.

About this event

Program Summary: The Prevention Basics training, which is a collaboration between the Southeast PTTC and the Addiction Prevention Coalition, provides an overview of the key concepts in substance use and misuse prevention. Participants will be introduced to concepts of the public health approach to prevention, the continuum of care and the role of coalitions and providers in community-based prevention efforts.

Learning Objectives: After completion of the training participants will be able to: 1) Explain substance misuse prevention. 2) Describe the public health approach to prevention. 3) Determine where strategies and initiatives "fall" along the continuum of care. 4) Discuss how substance use prevention is informed by the research on risk and protective factors
