Albuquerque-Bernalillo County Prevent

The Albuquerque Bernalillo County Prevention program organizes to reduce the misuse of alcohol and opioid pain medications among youth in our communities. Our strategy is to organize community stakeholder input to develop a thoughtful media campaign that will resonate with youth, parents, and those that interact with young people, such as healthcare providers and the Albuquerque Police Department.

The ABC Prevent Coalition is comprised of stakeholders from many groups such as the youth service agencies, the NM Department of Health, the Albuquerque Police Department, and Albuquerque Public Schools.
