SUBSTANCE ABUSE PREVENTION

Cambridge Prevention Coalition


The Cambridge Prevention Coalition aims to change social norms around drug and alcohol use in the community. Its main focus is reducing opioid abuse and accidental overdoses in Cambridge and surrounding communities. The Coalition also leads the Reality Check youth alcohol and marijuana prevention campaign and helps administer the Cambridge Teen Health Survey and Middle Grades Health Survey.

ABOUT THE CAMBRIDGE PREVENTION COALITION

The Cambridge Prevention Coalition uses a community-based approach for effecting policy, environmental, and social change around substance abuse, focusing on youth and families.

Its members include the Cambridge Public Health Department, the city's Department of Human Service Programs, the Cambridge Public Schools, the Cambridge Police Department, the Cambridge License Commission, drug and alcohol treatment providers, local universities, and emergency medical services.

The Cambridge Prevention Coalition became a program of the Cambridge Public Health Department in 2013, relocating from the City’s Department of Human Service Programs. The Cambridge Prevention Coalition was established in the early 1990s.
