ADACCV's prevention team utilizes scientifically proven strategies to address youth and family substance use issues. Prevention specialists partner with Concho Valley schools to provide a variety of evidence-based curriculums for students ages 4-17. They also provide presentations, interactive demonstrations, hands-on activities and other educational opportunities. The prevention staff offers prevention counseling and referral services for youth ages 14-17 and their families. These intervention-based services are designed to address high-risk behaviors in youth and provide access to available resources to them and their families.


Project Towards No Drug Abuse

Project TND is an effective, interactive classroom-based substance abuse prevention program that is based on more than two decades of successful research at the University of Southern California. 

Project TND focuses on three factors that predict tobacco, alcohol, and other drug use, violence-related behaviors, and other problem behaviors among youth, including:

Motivation factors (i.e., students' attitudes, beliefs, expectations, and desires regarding drug use);


Skills (social, self-control, and coping skills); and


Decision-making (i.e., how to make decisions that lead to health-promoting behaviors).


Project TND targets high school youth, ages 14 to 19. The program has proved successful when implemented in regular as well as alternative (continuation) high schools, with students from diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. 


At the completion of this program, students will be able to:

Stop or reduce the use of cigarettes, alcohol, marijuana, and hard drugs (i.e., cocaine, hallucinogens, depressants, amphetamines, etc).


Stop or reduce weapon carrying.


State accurate information about the consequences of drug use and abuse, including environmental, social, physiological, and emotional consequences.


Demonstrate behavioral and cognitive coping skills.


Make a personal commitment regarding drug use.
