What is the County of Los
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.
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.
