Substance Abuse - New Horizons

School-based Programs

The DCDPH’s substance abuse prevention education implements numerous school-based programs through a partnership through the DCDPH and Dare County Schools.

Community-based Programs

The DCDPH provides substance abuse prevention education in the community through Project Exposed, which provides a look into the teenage drug culture and present parents with information needed to combat illicit drug use. The DCDPH also provides substance abuse education to youth camps, daycares, civic organizations and other community groups.
