  • Convene all interested parties to explore what is currently being done in your area, what problems unique to your community need to be addressed, where resources are particularly needed to advance addiction prevention strategies, and put a plan of action together.

  • Expand the reach of the Engage the Community Seminar by doing a series of local seminars with other target groups (e.g. parents or faith-based communities) that could benefit from understanding the seminar learning objectives.

  • Ensure that youth in your community are educated on the brain chemistry of addiction, and forces that seek to normalize drug use or downplay harms. See Appendix A for a school-based version of the Engage the Community program, with additional materials on healthy decision making, social norms, and other prevention education essentials.
