Prevention

CDS Family & Behavioral Health Services is proud to have robust Prevention programming to help at-risk youth avoid self-destructive behaviors such as the use of intoxicants, engaging in violent behaviors, and truancy.

CDS partners with both the Levy County and Alachua County School Boards to provide classes in elementary and middle schools.  The classes offered are called “Too Good for Drugs,” “Too Good for Violence,” and “Project Success.”  These are all evidence-based curricula shown to reduce the risk of participants following self-destructive paths.

During the summer, Prevention teachers run summer programs in various locations to continue the prevention learning process for children in Levy and Alachua Counties.

In addition to classes in public schools, Prevention work is done in collaboration with the Health Promotion and Wellness Coalition in Alachua County as well as the Levy County Prevention Coalition.
