Overview: Community Outreach

IN THE COMMUNITY - MAKING A DIFFERENCE

We are involved in outreach in our Ventura County communities, educating and increasing awareness about the risks and realities of alcohol and drug misuse and abuse. We will post photos from our events on our Twitter and Facebook pages. Please contact us about community outreach events and to inquire about presentations. Our Community Outreach team can come and speak to your organization, in both English and Spanish.
