The Lake County PFS (Partnership for Success) project provides critical resources to reduce prescription drug misuse among 12-25 year olds and alcohol abuse among 12-20 year olds. Awarded in February 2016, this project incorporates environmental campaigns and classroom programming. The Environmental Campaigns being implemented as part of the Lake County PFS include SAMHSA’s “Talk. They Hear You.” and “What’s Your Side Effect,” a prescription drug abuse prevention campaign. The Lake County PFS partners with Hammond High, Hobart High, and Hobart Middle Schools to implement 2 Evidence-Based Programs:
• Project Towards No Drug Abuse
– an evidence-based drug prevention program for high school youth who are at risk of alcohol, tobacco, or other drug use and violence-related behavior.
• Too Good for Drugs
– an evidence-based prevention program, is a school-based substance abuse prevention curriculum that builds on students’ resiliency by teaching youth how to be socially competent and autonomous problem solvers.
