Substance Use Prevention & Intervention

Chemical Health Support

Promoting and supporting chemical health is an important component to achieving success personally and academically. Research shows youth chemical use of any kind is detrimental to the personal, social, and academic success of students. Moreover, youth substance use impacts overall health and brain development. Working together, we can support the chemical health of students and prevent youth substance use and abuse. Lakeville Area Schools is committed to meeting student needs through ongoing staff development, school-based counseling and support, and consultation and care coordination with community-based professionals when requested.

Substance Use Prevention

Lakeville Area Schools is committed to promoting chemical health through prevention efforts throughout our schools and community. In addition to school-based curriculum, community partnerships are vital to prevention of youth substance use. Through collaboration with various partners like U of M Extension and our local PATH (Proactive Approaches to Health) Coalition, we are also working on sustainable, environmental strategies to prevent youth use and access. To get involved in prevention efforts, please contact our School/Community Prevention Specialist at 952-232-3726.
