Substance Abuse Prevention

SEDES’S Substance Abuse Prevention Program focuses on helping adolescents to understand the causes of substance abuse and to prevent its onset. Substance abuse has serious consequences in our homes, schools, and communities. The primary goal of prevention is to delay the first use of alcohol or other drugs. SEDES aims to prevent and to reduce the use of alcohol, tobacco and drugs, and improve social behavior among teenagers. 

This program is available for middle schools and high schools.
