Prevention

We can protect our kids from addiction

And you can help

A child who reaches age 21 without smoking, abusing alcohol, or using drugs is virtually certain never to do so. As part of the overall continuum of services for adolescents, Meridian offers Prevention services that speak to these issues — including not only drug and alcohol abuse, but also depression, bullying and suicide. The goal is to stop these and other dangerous behaviors before they start.

It is also very important to us to constantly raise awareness in the community about issues related to drug and alcohol abuse — in particular, reducing misconceptions about who it affects and providing information about resources available to those in need.
