Substance abuse prevention programs work

This is an interesting video of how Iceland engaged in substance abuse prevention with its teenagers. The same type of programs have been developed and implemented in the United States.

The Genesee Council on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse (GCASA) developed and implemented a Drug Free Communities Coalition in the 2000s. It won the national CADCA award in 2006 for having the best Drug Free Communities Coalition in the United States.

The Drug Free Communities coalition was led at GCASA by Maryann Bowman, Shannon Ford, and Tom Talbot.
