Undoubtedly, we all have had a friend or loved one that has been impacted by alcohol or drugs. The misuse of alcohol and drugs happens for many reasons. Genetics, family dynamics, negative childhood experiences, family and friends that use, poor social skills, and availability of drugs and alcohol are just a few. But, many of these factors can be successfully altered with prevention interventions. Prevention Works!

Anuvia offers a full range of prevention and intervention services to help promote wellness and to reduce the negative impacts of drug and alcohol misuse. We focus our efforts on understanding needs in the community, implementing proven strategies, partnering with other organizations, and playing a leadership role in Mecklenburg County and North Carolina.

More specifically, we provide media campaigns to raise awareness of substance abuse issues, prevention education for youth and families in schools and communities, training for professionals, workplace wellness programming, intervention for those experiencing the early consequences of substance misuse, facilitation of community coalitions, and advocacy for organizational and governmental practices and policies that reduce access and availability.
