Communities Talk to Prevent Alcohol and Other Drug Misuse
Communities Talk Intro
Communities can move mountains when they talk, share, and take action to prevent alcohol and other drug misuse. Each year, community-based organizations of all kinds—including local chapters of national organizations, community and youth-led coalitions, colleges, and universities nationwide—hold creative events and activities that mobilize their communities to both learn about substance misuse and put prevention strategies in place.
Since 2006, more than 11,000 of these activities have been held across the country, supported by SAMHSA planning stipends that can go a long way in making the activities more strategic, collaborative, well-attended, and impactful.
