Central Region Prevention Coalition

Mobilizing community members to address adolescent alcohol, tobacco, and drug use.

The Central Region Prevention Coalition (CRPC) mobilizes youth, residents, and community partners to create neighborhood and community changes which address the increasing trend of alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use among adolescents in San Diego County.

CRPC provides training and technical assistance to community members, youth, parents, the business community, and local leaders to develop strategies to reduce the impact of alcohol and drug abuse. The SAY team regularly receives calls from other cities wanting to learn how to replicate SAY’s work.

Activities include:

  • Youth Town Halls
  • Community Assessments and Prevention Awareness campaigns
  • Monitoring on- and off-sale liquor code compliance
  • Monitoring illegal marijuana dispensaries
  • Implementing the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program
