Prevention

 

CSACC works collaboratively with Commanders, local community-based organizations and schools to provide prevention that strengthens communities, enhances mission readiness for Marines and provides requisite knowledge of the effects of alcohol and drug abuse to ultimately assist service members and their family members in making low-risk choices.

CSACC Prevention services are based on the Institute of Medicine Model (IOM). The IOM model is used to guide the identification of population groups and individuals with differing prevention needs and align these needs with appropriate policies, programs and practices

The prevention team consists of trained prevention and educational specialists (Alcohol Prevention Specialist and Drug Demand Reduction Coordinator) that work collaboratively to ensure our service members and their families have the necessary information and strategies to reduce high-risk behaviors that could lead to addiction.
