What We Do
DADPP implements evidence – based environmental strategies that make a positive impact on youth in the Dallas area. Environmental strategies are aimed at population-level change and seek to
(1) limit youth access to substances
(2) change the culture and contexts within which decisions about substances are made, and
(3) reduce the prevalence of negative consequences associated with substance use.
These environmental strategies create community-wide change by challenging perceptions and increasing substance abuse awareness.
