Community Prevention Services

NCADD of East San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys, Inc. is part of a network of prevention providers in the county of Los Angeles. We work within the school systems and community to reduce access of substances/drugs. We offer educational services, outreach, environmental advocacy and campaigns to improve the outcomes of youth in a community.

Substance Abuse Prevention, also known as drug abuse prevention, is a process that attempts to prevent the onset/first use of substances or limit the development of problems associated with using alcohol and other substances. Prevention efforts may focus on the individual, their surroundings and the environment.

Substance abuse prevention efforts typically focus on minors – children and teens. Substances typically targeted by prevention services include alcohol (including underage drinking, binge drinking, and driving under the influence), tobacco (including e-cigarettes and various forms of smokeless tobacco), marijuana, opioids and other emerging drugs.

Some of our signature campaigns and services are as follows:

Sticker Shock

sticker shockProject Sticker Shock will raise awareness about underage drinking. Studies show -- and our own assessments confirm -- that the majority of alcohol consumed by underage drinkers is purchased by those over the legal drinking age -- oftentimes parents, other family members and friends.

Our staff and volunteers visit participating local stores, the week before Super Bowl; that sell alcohol and place warning signs, stickers, decals, and posters on windows and coolers to help send the message that providing alcohol to minors is a criminal offense. This is a great project for service hours and a chance to improve the health and well-being of your community!

Parents Who Host Lose the Most Campaign

Parents Who Host, Lose The Most takes place at the local level, concentrating on celebratory times for youth – May & June graduation – when underage drinking parties are prevalent. This campaign encourages parents, schools and the ENTIRE community to send a unified message that teen alcohol consumption is unhealthy, unsafe and unacceptable.

This campaign will bring awareness of the local conditions around underage drinking to our community – to leaders, parents, and youth –and will send a direct message that parents who provide alcohol to teenagers do so at great risk to our community.
