An Ounce of Prevention
“I learned that I need to respect myself and not do anything to hurt my body or mind.”
-Emma, age 13
In order to stop drug and alcohol abuse before it even begins, Santa Maria offers a prevention program open to the community, local schools, and community agencies.
Through a program called Rainbow Days, Santa Maria provides a 10 week course to area youth that focuses on self esteem, good choices, and anti drugs use. We also provide an anti-smoking and anti- drug presentation for students as well as adults.
