A community coalition is a group of concerned citizens, big or small, working to shift attitudes, norms, and stigma, around substance use and prevention. All that is needed is a small, committed group of people to create real change for generations.
Prevention Resource Centers (PRCs) connect individuals with coalitions in their community. Prevention Resource Centers also provide regional training and assistance to help groups start a coalition and offer continued support for the coalition when it is operational.
