The Community Relations and Prevention Department provides multiple prevention and education services in Wayne and Holmes counties in Ohio for community groups, schools, businesses, and individuals in the community. Their goal is to provide education about the effects of substance use, domestic violence, safe dating and other topics in a way that promotes positive mental health and wellness. The Community Relations and Prevention Department also focuses on substance use prevention and other risky behaviors through the development of protective factors.

FAQs

OneEighty focuses on primary prevention which is about averting an individual from experiencing an issue or risk behavior before they have exposure. Prevention falls within the substance use disorder spectrum, where we may also work with individuals who have some exposure, but not direct experience. We also focus on environmental prevention in which we educate the community to help change social norms and limit risks.
