In Summit County, strong values and healthy families are hallmarks of our way of life. The Summit County Health Department Prevention Team is committed to protecting our residents of all ages from painful consequences associated with substance misuse and abuse and other behavioral health problems.
Effective Prevention Work requires a data-driven approach to assess levels of risk and protective factors that predict problem behaviors. The team analyzes data from many different sources to determine strategies for our community. The foundation of our services is evidence-based which offers proven ways to promote health and prevent problems. They are based on research and provide documented health benefits, so you can be confident they work.
All the programs offered by the team are in Spanish and English and are free to the community.
