Our goal is to help provide individuals of all ages, families, and community groups make healthy choices, which will reduce the likelihood of problems associated with alcohol, tobacco, other drug use and destructive decisions. Prevention can only be accomplished through continuous and dedicated programs directed at all age levels. By working together, we strengthen our community and our commitment for a bright future.

Communities know that a positive attitude advocating the need for alcohol, tobacco, and other drug prevention is the key ingredient for success. ZION Integrated Behavioral Health Services is actively involved in workplace consultation, and coalition building. Our focus is on presenting current, factual information, which empowers communities to strengthen environments that allow people to achieve their potential and contribute positively to society.

Schools look to us to provide positive, research-based presentations, programs, and training on alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use and abuse prevention. Students from pre-school through high school participate in age-appropriate, fun, and non-threatening programs that reinforce the benefits of making healthy choices. They need to be taught the skills to create healthy relationships and how to take an active part in their community. They need a clear set of norms about non-use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.
