TAKING CHARGE: Managing Community Alcohol and Drug Risk Environments
Prevention by Design offers a series of training materials for those interested in preventing alcohol and drug problems at the city level. These materials are available for general use and distribution:

First, a short overview of the community-based environmental approach to prevention and how it applies to cities is available in both a trainer and participant adobe file. Second, an expanded version is available that goes into greater detail, suitable for a half-day workshop. We also offer a comprehensive action guide that goes into greater detail than the workshops, complete with reference materials in .pdf format. Prevention by Design offers these reference materials in a downloadable format at no cost.
