Prevention

Prevention Services are designed to help Greenville County residents of all ages avoid the dangers of using alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. We strive to keep young people from experimenting with these substances and prevent the development of subsequent problems.

To help in achieving this goal, the Phoenix Center involves the community in developing and implementing comprehensive plans to address substance abuse through coalition focus.

At the Phoenix Center, our programs are research based and proven effective. Using the Risk and Protective model, programs are designed to identify and reduce factors that place an individual or a community at risk of experiencing problems, while at the same time, strengthening other identifiable factors that can help protect individuals and communities from developing such problems.

Consultation and training is available for schools, neighborhoods, businesses, churches, and other community groups. Programs are continuously developed to address the current issues surrounding substance abuse in our communities.
