Here are some of the questions we are working on:
- How can communities help youth delay the onset of substance use, recognizing the later the better for avoiding addiction?
- What do towns need to know when deciding about retail cannabis?
- What can help vulnerable populations avoid substance misuse?
- What do legislators need to know about substance misuse? about retail marketing? about social services?
CVNDC is currently working on tobacco, cannabis and alcohol misuse Prevention, new partnerships to address vulnerable populations, rural community coalition-building, and youth engagement. Our funding comes primarily from federal and state grants.
Serving Washington County, we are one of the five community grant regions in Vermont recently included in the grant awarded to the Vermont Department of Health’s Alcohol and Drug Abuse Programs by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). With this 2020 Regional Prevention Partnerships (RPP) Grant funding of $150,000 a year for five years, CVNDC is working with community partners to focus on reducing alcohol and cannabis use among youth ages 13-18 and young adults ages 18-25, with a special focus on preventing youth from starting to use at an early age and on Vermont’s highest needs groups including young adults and LGBTQ populations experiencing disparities related to substance use.
