What is the County of Los Angeles doing?

Community Level Prevention

Comprehensive community level prevention mobilization efforts can prevent and reduce problems related to drug use by lessening risk factors and strengthening resiliency factors among local communities.  Eight community coalitions were implemented in an effort to form a coordinated Countywide response to mobilize local residents against methamphetamine problems and use across the County.  This action was to enhance and build on current methamphetamine awareness and prevention activities currently occurring in the County and further engage the community to recognize the growing problems associated with methamphetamine use and take action.  It is also an attempt to coordinate efforts and share lessons learned and successes throughout the County.  The investment expired on February 28, 2010 however, despite discontinued funding for the community coalitions, one coalition continues their important work in their community.
