PREVENT! is comprised of parents, youth, business owners, medical professionals, government, media, faith-based organizations, and more, all working together to build a healthy, thriving, drug-free community. Since 2007, PREVENT! has been implementing a  federal, Drug Free Communities Support Grant awareded by the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA).  In September of 2012, PREVENT! received a renewal of this grant for an additional 5 years and  $625,000. This grant as well as additional local funding will be implemented in Clark County to support community wide prevention initiatives around underage drinking, marijuana and prescription pills.

Our Mission:
To prevent and reduce youth substance abuse and underage drinking through increased collaboration for community-level change.
