Facilitating opportunities to support and connect communities, build resilience and increase collaboration

The first Drug Take Back event was held in 2009 at one site (Clark County Fairgrounds) which collected just over 100 pounds of pills.  PREVENT! built capacity within the community to reduce prescription drug abuse by increasing year round disposal options.  All law enforcement agencies in the entire county established year round disposal policies.   PREVENT! hosted a community training with STASHA youth for the Ads and Subtracts Campaign Project.  The group created decals for store fronts displaying safe and healthy stores supporting youth in our community.  PREVENT! hosted community events including Binge to Black Out and a Free Arts Northwest mentoring event with Evergreen School District and Big Brothers Big Sisters.
