Empowering Individuals

The drug and alcohol substance abuse prevention program at PARS is designed to bring awareness to youth, families, and other community members in the Topeka area using a diverse set of strategies focused on awareness, education, and prevention. Evidence-based approaches have shown that by improving protective factors and limiting risk factors, the behaviors associated with addiction can be mitigated, and the potential for life-long, life-altering habits can be reduced.
