Prevention Team visits Capitol Hill

Director Ann Gilbert, along with representatives from Vermont prevention coalitions, youth, counselors, Prevention Works VT, and Vermont Association of Mental Health and Recovery, visited Capitol Hill and met with Senator Leahy as well as with staff from Senator Sander’s office and Congressman Peter Welch. The group attended the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America’s (CADCA) 26th Annual National Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C. The forum covered a wide range of topics including how to prevent prescription drug and synthetic drug abuse, new research about the effect of THC on the adolescent brain, how to create tobacco-free environments, and develop policies to reduce underage and excessive drinking.
