Why Prevention Matters:

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, prevention helps people develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills they need to make good choices or change harmful behaviors. Prevention reduces the risk of behavioral health issues and the likelihood of substance abuse. The Rhode Island Regional Coalitions is a unified group dedicated to educating parents, children, and the entire community about evidence-based prevention skills and the importance of healthy lifestyle choices.
