Check Out Our Featured Prevention Campaign...

The Age Matters program is designed for parents and focuses on brain development in adolescents...and the difference that development, which is on-going until the age of 25, makes in the choices teenagers make, the actions they take and the way they behave.

Age really does matter when you're under 25.

The program is conversational and features elements from the prevention presentations we deliver to high school students so parents can receive the same information in the same way as their teenagers,  Information about the Lock Your Meds campaign and other ways to keep your teenagers and others safe is also a part of the program.

Adolescent Prevention Services

Adolescent Prevention Services

Adolescent Prevention Services (A.P.S.) Program provides counseling services to students experiencing school, peer, and family problems related directly, or indirectly, to alcohol and/or other substance use. Through counseling sessions in the schools as well as group sessions at Burke Recovery, the A.P.S. Coordinator promotes healthy drug-free lifestyles by helping students develop the coping skills and positive self-esteem they need in order to successfully move from adolescence to adulthood.


ScIP is an alternative to suspension for students who violate the school’s drug free policy.  ScIP provides alcohol & drug education for the middle & high school students who are experimenting with alcohol/drugs or those considered at risk for future alcohol/drug use.

Drug-Free Communities

Drug-Free Burke is a SAMHSA-funded prevention program designed to support the initiatives of the Burke Substance Abuse Network (BSAN), a county-wide coalition, by developing community engagement and responding to the needs of residents of Burke County. With a focus on the reduction of underage drinking and non-medical use of prescription drugs, the program focuses on developing an innovative response to the complex problem.

This program is funded through a competitive grant award from the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
