Prevention Services is comprised of the Brockton Area and Plymouth Area Prevention Collaboratives which are made up of their own autonomous coalitions. 

Prevention Services’ mission is to save lives from substance use and prevent the damage it can do to individuals, families and the community at large. 

To do this, Prevention Services educates young people with accurate information and tools to cope with life’s challenges, and to help them understand the harmful effects of drugs and alcohol. Staff connect individuals and families with the resources they need to become better informed and work with leaders to build a system of support in every neighborhood.
