Commonwealth Prevention Alliance (CPA)


At our annual meeting on June 13, 2014, we updated our Mission Statement: 

To support prevention professionals in eliminating substance abuse 

and risk-related behaviors.



Talk To Them At Every Age - 

They're Listening


DDAP has launched a strategic initiative entitled "Talk To Them At Every Age - They're Listening" www.ddap.pa.gov/underagedrinking.

DDAP, along with support and assistance from members of the PLCB, EPIS Center, the Parent Panel Advisory Council, the Dauphin County SCA, and the Miracle Group at the Hope Station in Harrisburg, created two PSAs encouraging parents and caregivers to talk to their children about alcohol.

 

Also visit SAMHSA's website www.stopalcoholabuse.gov/statevideos to find videos developed by other states.

This campaign helps prevent underage drinking among children ages 9 to 15 by providing parents and caregivers with the resources they need to properly address this issue with their children early. Find customizable radio, television, and print PSAs; social media tools; and fact sheets, talking points, and other print materials to share with parents and caregivers in your community.



FASD Awareness Campaign

 

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) are 100% preventable. CPA's goal is for PA to join with the 20 other states that have mandatory signage in restaurants, bars, and taverns. 


Our purpose is to educate patrons about the harm of alcohol consumption during pregnancy. 

 

Participate in our FASD awareness campaign. See "Information Sharing" page for our DDAP-approved materials. 




Educate yourself 

CPA encourages you to develop your own data-based stance on the issues re: legalization of cannabis. See our "Information Sharing" page
