Manhasset CASA recognizes that individuals are influenced by a complex set of factors such as community norms, mass media messages and accessibility to alcohol and prescription drugs. We engage our sector members, partners and the community to view substance use as a public health problem and utilize multiple environmental strategies to change the community conditions by which youth misuse alcohol and drugs.
Reducing Access to Drugs & Alcohol
CASA implements multiple environmental strategies to change the community conditions by which teens abuse alcohol and prescription drugs.
Over the course of the academic year, Manhasset CASA works with parents, students and the community to host prevention education programs and initiatives addressing the physical, social and emotional wellness of our children and the prevention of youth substance use.
Social Marketing Campaigns
Manhasset CASA works with national and state substance abuse prevention organizations to provide media messages and resources to prevent underage drinking and prescription drug misuse.
