Substance Abuse Prevention Services
offers solutions to high risk populations

There are several primary domains of influence that affect youth, both risk and protective factors. The risk factors include teen pregnancy, school drop out, substance abuse, teenage suicide, and violent crime. The protective factors include the society and environment, (including) family, community, school and peers.


The overall goal of the program is to increase the protective factors for high-risk students in order to prevent, reduce, or delay the use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs and the problems associated with such use.


To provide the leadership in developing a community wide vision and plan for eliminating substance abuse in Calhoun County community. Our program has received national recognition from the Michigan State University Children, Youth and Families Program. Minority Program Services reached over 50,000 people each year with their anti drug message of positive youth development.
