October is National Substance Abuse Prevention Month, and this year’s theme is Unleashing the Collective Power of Communities.
Please join ONDCP and unleash the power within your community by sharing your Prevention Month plans at firstname.lastname@example.org and tweeting us at @ONDCP. Also, share the President’s National Substance Abuse Prevention Month Proclamation with everyone you know. Together we can spread the message that prevention works!
ONDCP will host a prevention webinar on Oct. 6, from 2 – 3:30 p.m. EST. The webinar will provide information on evidence-based prevention strategies and feature the important perspective of parents who have lost children due to one-time use of illicit drugs. We invite you to watch the event online or host a viewing party.
