Prevention

What Guides Us

Knowing what works in prevention, and what doesn’t, is vital to keeping kids from developing a life-long substance abuse addiction and suffering from the consequences of that addiction. MCOSA and our provider agencies in Macomb County have created a help guide to ensure we are using evidence-based programming and strategies.
