Substance Use Prevention and Harm Reduction

The creation of the Healthy Cabarrus Substance Use Coalition was in response to the identification of substance use as a priority issue in the 2012 Cabarrus County Community Needs Assessment. Substance use prevention and harm reduction related efforts have continued following the 2016 Community Needs Assessment where substance use was identified as the number one community need. Drug Free Communities is focused on the prevention of underage drinking and prescription medication misuse among middle and high school youth in Cabarrus County. The syringe exchange program provides clean injection supplies and overdose reversal medications, along with referrals to appropriate community resources including substance use treatment, detox and recovery supports.
