Cumberland and Lincoln Prevention Coalition

Communicating with you, so together, we can promote a safe and healthy drug free environment.

Happy Holidays!

Can you feel the excitement? Children everywhere are counting down the days & parents are wondering "How will I ever get it all done in time?". Take a few moments amidst the "hustle & bustle" to appreciate the beauty of the season, take advantage of the warm weather, & fondly look back on the incredible year it has been! From all of us at the Lincoln & Cumberland Prevention Coalition, we wish you a wonderful, happy & healthy holiday season!

"And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow,
stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.” -Dr. Seuss

A.T.I. (Above The Influence)

A.T.I. (Above the Influence)

Cumberland/Lincoln Prevention Coalition is underway in both communities! In Cumberland, middle school students attended “Family Night”, which gave students an opportunity to see what clubs and programs are available at the high school.

Lincoln ATI students are finishing up a radio PSA and planning their next big event. Stay tuned! Check out the pictures below from the "Family Night"!

ATI “Above the Influence” is a place where teens can learn how to stand up to negative pressures and influences. ATI meets once a week, after school. Youth develop a media campaign to educate and address the negative pressures that they may be facing.. The purpose is to create awareness of the impact of drug abuse and negative pressures on young people. The more aware you are of the types of influence around you, the better prepared you will be to face them. Learn more about the program & check out their website HERE!


We are proud to introduce the Blackstone Valley Prevention Coalition's holiday elf..."Coal" (short for Coalition!)! Coal has been busy this month spreading holiday cheer, education and knowledge about prevention! He has been busy teaching ways to "de-stress" during the holiday season, chatting with his friends about the dangers of marijuana, and being a designated driver to a fellow elf, Joey!
