Community Relations and Prevention


Promoting healthy communities is at the core of who we are. Advocating for national policies which have a direct impact on our communities and those we serve is of the utmost importance. To find out how to get involved with our advocacy efforts, contact us!

We believe the strongest prevention strategies include community involvement! For this reason, our prevention department coordinates coalitions. These community-based groups are made up of volunteers from different areas of the community to focus on youth substance abuse prevention

Professional Development Opportunities:

OneEighty provides evidence-based, dynamic and effective training to mental health professionals, social workers, counselors, case managers, health and human services personnel, educators, and others. Our professional trainings incorporate the latest research findings and are carefully designed for maximum impact at both large conferences and small-group workshops. Our workshops are designated as a continuing education provider through the Ohio Counselor, Social Worker, Marriage and Family Therapist Board.


Employers look to OneEighty to provide relevant and accurate Drug-Free Workplace (DFW) trainings. DFW is designed to help employers develop a safer and more cost-effective workplace. Employers who implement a drug-free workplace are choosing to keep their employees safe by reducing the chance of an accident caused by substance abuse. Once implemented, OneEighty can help businesses obtain (if eligible) a discount on workers' compensation premiums for up to five years. The Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation also offers financial grants to help offset the cost of implementing a program.

T.I. provides a leadership opportunity for local students who have made the commitment to prevent the abuse of alcohol and other drugs. T.I. students pledge to promote healthy life choices among their peers and in their communities. These students meet regularly and host prevention events in their school districts.
