Parents are often concerned about whether their children will start or are already using drugs such as tobacco, marijuana, and others, like prescription drugs. Learn the scientific facts about drugs and drug abuse and what you can do to prevent your children from starting to take drugs or progressing further into drug abuse.
 
 
Participate in the next drug “Take Back” day in your community.  Drop off unneeded meds safely and for free, no questions asked.  The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.
 
 
The Prevention Programs consist of ADEPT Health Education Team and contracted community- and school-based agencies that aim to create safe and healthy communities by reducing problems associated with alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use through education, training, and technical assistance for Orange County.
