Everyone has a role in prevention. You can do your part by joining the Prevention Action Alliance.

As a disease, addiction impacts the afflicted person, their family, and their community. Therefore, your entire community has to respond in order for your prevention efforts to be effective.

As part of our mission to lead healthy communities in the prevention of substance misuse and the promotion of mental health wellness, we support four networks of prevention providers and maintain an active network of advocates for prevention. These networks combined represent Ohio’s youth-led prevention providers, community coalitions, colleges and universities, families who have lost a loved one to an overdose, and those who make prevention a priority among their communities and our state as a whole.

Below, you’ll find more information about each of these networks, including directories of active members, information about joining each one, and resources specific to those networks. Please consider learning more about and joining one or more of these networks, whether that’s by volunteering for a community coalition near you, meeting your legislator about an important bill, or in your regular workday.
