Substance Use Prevention & Recovery


nbCC’s Substance Use Prevention work is to oversee all aspects of planning and implementation for the Bureau of Substance Abuse Services prevention grant. This work is guided by a strategic plan, draws from evidence-based approaches, evolves based on lessons learned and new information. Current strategies intended to reduce youth substance use include: working with pediatric providers, parent education and engagement, supporting evidence-based prevention practices in schools, educating and supporting youth workers, and media messages to change community norms.

nbCC’s recovery focused work is to support and implement a peer-based recovery program, the Beacon Recovery Community Center
