Prevention Unit

The goal of the Prevention Unit  is to reduce the amount of drug and alcohol use in our communities through education and risk reduction activities.

We are committed to providing the most current information on Alcohol, tobacco, and Other Drugs (ATOD), drug trends, treatment and other related issues.  Our educational and informational programs are offered in the schools and community as classroom programs, small groups and one-time presentations.  All programs are designed to encourage and promote safe, responsible decision-making skills, as well as drug and alcohol awareness.



Community:

For community based programs, the Prevention Unit bases their presentations on group/event needs or focus.  If your company or organization would like to schedule the Prevention Unit for an educational program, please contact us with the event date, time, location and number of attendees expected.

School:

The Prevention Unit educates students by utilizing evidence based curriculums.  The term "evidence based" means that the curriculum has been researched and proven to produce positive outcomes.  Two such curriculums used in Fayette County school districts are Too Good For Drugs and Project Alert.

Too Good For Drugs! (K8) is a school-based prevention program designed to reduce risk factors and enhance protective factors related to alcohol, tobacco and other drug (ATOD) use among students.

"The Mendez Foundation" - Too Good For Drugs

Project Alert! (Middle School) is a skills based curriculum that teaches teens how to say NO.  Visit the "Project Alert" web site.

FCDAC, Inc. also offers Student Assistance Program (SAP) liaison services to school based SAP teams in the county
