Mission Statement

The mission of the Center for Prevention Services is to promote heatlhy living and prevent addictions through intergrated approaches to health.

Description

The Center for Prevention Services (CPS) is a private, non-profit agendcy whose goal is to provide a better understanding of substance abuse through prevention, education, and research.

Since its inception in 1971, we have offered high quality, creative classes on prevention and healthy behavior related topics. In addition, we conduct accredited trainings and maintain one of the the nation's longest running longitudinal studies relative to youth drug use.

Our agency is one of the oldest free standing prevention agencies in the nation, and has a history of defining prevention through community intervention and science-based educational programs. Our professional staff continues to serve on a national, regional, and international basis.

We strongly believe that prevention is a process that empowers individuals to meet life's challenges by creating and reinforcing healthy behaviors and lifestyles, which reduce risk that contributes to alcohol, tobacco, and other drug abuse and misuse.
