Suffolk County Prevention Resource Center - Visit www.liprc.org Today!
The Prevention Resource Center is committed to facilitating partnerships among schools, communities and prevention providers to focus on the provision of effective strategies to deal with alcohol, drug, and tobacco abuse and problem gambling.
Go to www.liprc.org to learn more.
The PRC strives to meet this challenge by collaborating with community-based providers gathered to form strong local coalitions. The PRC functions as a centralized clearinghouse of resources for youth, parents, professionals, treatment providers, educators, the media and the general public. We provide this education through a comprehensive continuum of resources, trainings, and community-related services. We serve as a liaison to support coalitions and prevention providers with the integration of prevention science to practice.
The PRC utilizes the Strategic Prevention Planning Framework to promote strategies that are designed to reduce risk factors confronted by communities and families. By reducing risk factors and promoting protective factors within communities, families and individuals, we minimize the negative effects of substance abuse.
Pamela Mizzi, MS, CASAC, LMHC, Director of Prevention
