Civic & Government

Civic & Government

Local Civic and Government leaders often have unique capacities for networking, resource allocation and advocacy. The men and women who serve as leaders in local government, local schools and area service agencies, have the unique authority to legislate policies and define practices that increase our communities capacity to reduce the risks for substance abuse and its harmful consequences. In the provision of naloxone through law enforcement personnel and first responders, the adoption and enforcement of social host ordinances, the implementation of targeted intervention programs with high risk students, the creation of a best-practice prescription drug monitoring program, or through availing safe medication disposal options, local civic and government leaders make huge, lasting contributions to substance abuse prevention.
