Talbot Partnership Promotes Community Empowerment with Car Magnet

clip_image002[2] (59 x 72)Talbot Partnership for Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Prevention is offering “I Support a Drug Free Talbot” car magnet as part of their effort to encourage healthy behaviors and help prevent and reduce substance abuse. These magnets are available at the Talbot Partnership offices for a donation of $10.

The goal of Talbot Partnership is to build community awareness of the problem of substance abuse and change the community norms that favor substance use by our youth and adults.

Preventing drug and alcohol abuse is far from simple. New forms of drug abuse enter every day. Additionally, with the internet, television, and movies promoting its use, addressing this issue becomes more complex. Talbot Partnership is encouraging the community to recognize this growing threat; promote healthy behaviors and attitudes; and reduce high risk behaviors associated with substance abuse.

According to Gary Pearce, Executive Director for Talbot Partnership; “Communities must take shared responsibility for creating conditions that support positive choices. These magnets are part of a larger strategy to build community support and empowerment for addressing the challenge we face in dealing with the risks from substance abuse.”
