Mason County Coalitions
What is a Coalition?
A group of individuals and/or organizations with a common interest who agree to work together toward a common goal.
Chestnut Health Systems Substance Use Prevention Team provides the Too Good for Drugs curriculum to All Middle Schools in Mason County.
Too Good for Drugs empowers teens to meet the challenges of middle school life fostering confidence and building resistance to substance abuse. Students set and reach more complex goals and, in the process, develop and practice stronger decision-making skills and effective-communication skills.
Students also learn to identify and manage their emotions and the emotions of others so they can better relate to others and seek to associate with positive peer groups. Too Good for Drugs addresses environmental and developmental risk factors related to alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs through the development of knowledge, skills, and attitudes teens need to make healthy decisions consistent with their healthy goals.
