History & Mission
Drug Prevention Resources (DPR) began in 1935 with pioneers in prevention who implemented what are still some of the most successful prevention approaches today--individual education, capacity-building and environmental change.
Our mission is to create a drug-free generation through collaboration, innovation, education and advocacy. DPR unites students, families and communities in a common desire to power change and flourish in positive, drug-free environments. We intend to transform the prevention field so that entire communities assume the mantle of leadership for steering children into adulthood substance-free.
We are a statewide leader in the prevention field, as we provide the latest nationally-proven strategies for youth, families and communities to be safer, healthier and drug-free. Imagine a drug-free generation! It’s possible!
