New Philadelphia, Ohio – Two groups are teaming up to educate the community on the best practices for drug use prevention.
The Tuscarawas County Anti-Drug Coalition is partnering with Personal & Family Counseling Services to offer a series of free prevention education trainings to Tuscarawas County schools, community agencies and youth service organizations.
Tuscarawas County ADC Coordinator Jodi Salvo says their goal is to strengthen the community by equipping people with proven prevention tools.
“By promoting the use of effective evidence-based prevention programs throughout the county we will be building our prevention capacity to provide information, education, and skill development among our youth to make healthy, drug-free decisions,” she says.

Botvin’s LifeSkills - Feb. 14th and 15th from 9 to to 4 p.m.
