Prevention

PREVENTION PROGRAM – the Center’s Alcohol Tobacco and Other Drugs Unit (ATOD)

This program is rooted in the primary prevention mode. The continual emphasis is on stopping substance abuse before it develops, and before it extracts its emotional and physical toll. It focuses on preventing ATOD problems, initiating and delivering a cultural and language-specific core package of innovative strategies for the Westside of Chicago. It is comprised of five sub-programs established to help reduce the incidence of alcohol/substance abuse among young people within our community, utilizing the State of Illinois Prevention Strategies: Information and education, Alternative Activities, Community Mobilization and Social Policy. These strategies are used to develop and enhance a network of social support for the families of high-risk youth.
