Reducing underage drinking and prescription drug misuse has a long-term positive impact for everyone in our community. The Louisiana Partnerships for Success (LaPFS) II program is grounded in a community that has a racially, culturally, and economically diverse population. It aims to address the major challenges facing the community, specifically in substance abuse and mental health.
LaPFS initiatives strive to reduce underage drinking and prescription drug misuse and abuse in Sabine Parish, because it has been identified as a high-need community. It is funded by NLHSD.
“The Sabine Prevention Alliance is a community-based program comprised of volunteers from various sectors whose mission is to keep our children and youth safe, sober and successful through information dissemination and engagement with individuals, agencies and families. I am very proud of the work that we have done.” – James Wagley, Coalition Coordinator
