  • Increase supportive substance abuse prevention, intervention and treatment (information and resources) for youth (and parents)
  • Support educators in responding to youth substance abuse through specialized opportunities for training and linkage to available resources
  • Develop/implement supports that address existing gaps in services for individuals with substance use disorder and their families
