Northeastern Counseling Center's substance abuse prevention efforts focus heavily on increasing awareness in our communities. With a coverage area of Duchesne, Uintah and Daggett Counties, our prevention team relies heavily on local residents, church groups, civic groups, and businesses to host and promote our prevention presentations. Our prevention presentations are offered at no charge within our coverage area.
In an effort to reduce recidivism rates amongst first time juvenile offenders and DUI offenders, our prevention staff are certified instructors for the evidence based Prime For Life education classes. Prime for Life is available for both youth and adults to help them understand their risk for experiencing alcohol or drug problems.
In an effort to increase compliance and eliminate underage alcohol sales in our area, our prevention staff became trained to certify local businesses for the service and sales of alcohol.
