Regional Prevention SAPC

Regional Substance Abuse Prevention Collaborative (SAPC)

DanversCARES is proud to partner with the City of Peabody and the Healthy Peabody Collaborative, a sister substance abuse prevention coalition, to work together on regional prevention efforts. The TriTown Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition of Topsfield, Middleton and Boxford are also partners in this effort. The City of Peabody was awarded a three-year grant from the Massachusetts Bureau of Substance Abuse Services to focus on reducing common risk factors that impact youth in this region.

FY2016 will bring regional assessment and planning across community partners to maximize resources and build on the foundation of prevention work already happening in these communities.
