What we do

When protective factors in the community, homes, or schools are increased then the amount of overdose deaths and drug/alcohol related health problems may decrease.

Our programs offer presentations to after school programs, parent groups, church groups, summer programs, on a variety of topics. CASA-Trinity has evidence based prevention programs (EBPs) that increase the protective factors in each setting. The programs are (click on each item for more information):
