Our mission is to empower youth to make healthy choices and resist social pressures to drink alcohol and use other drugs.
Substance use can lead to chronic illness such as heart disease and diabetes. It also has far reaching effects on individual health, family and community, so preventing drug and alcohol use has to start early. In 2014 an estimated 22.5 million Americans ages 12 and older reported needing treatment for alcohol and/or illicit drug use. Tehama County Substance Use Recovery Center provides a variety of programs that focus on preventing substance use amongst our youth. Tehama County Substance Use Recovery Center works in collaboration with Tehama County Department of Education Drug Free Communities to support these activities.
