Home - CB Cares. The Center for Alcohol and Drug Resources : Programs : Community : Bergen County Prevention Coalition.

The Center for Alcohol and Drug Resources : Programs : Community : Bergen County Prevention Coalition

BCPC’s members work together to address these significant issues by leveraging resources and building on the group’s collective strengths to influence the environment as it relates to underage drinking, prescription medication misuse across the lifespan, reducing the use of illegal substances with a special focus on opioids among young adults 18-25 years of age, and reducing the use of new and emerging drugs of abuse across the lifespan. Ultimately, the BCPC will be a comprehensive community coalition that will respond to community conditions by developing and implementing multi-faceted plans that lead to measurable, population-level reduction in one or more substance abuse problems.

Prevention Coalition. Strong Through Our Plan (The STOP Coalition) was begun in the early 1990s by a group of citizens concerned about the growing problem of substance abuse in Southern West Virginia.

Prevention Coalition

As the organization grew and progressed, a mission was adopted: STOP is committed to serving and mobilizing our communities around the issues of substance abuse in order to promote community well being and a high quality of life that is free from the impact of substance abuse and its adverse effects. To move toward accomplishing this mission, two broad goals have been articulated: Reduce substance abuse and related problems in Mingo County. Promote cultural change by engaging in research, education, coalition building, environmental management, intervention, and other appropriate activities to reduce high risk alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use in the community.
