Substance Prevention Alliance of Needham

NEEDHAM YOUTH - Healthy in Mind, body, and Spirit

healthy in mind, body and spirit



SPAN is a coalition of volunteers in Needham, MA, dedicated to youth substance use prevention. SPAN stands for Substance Prevention Alliance of Needham

We incorporate a collaborative, community based and data driven prevention approach to reduce alcohol, marijuana and other drug use among Needham youth.

Through community education, partnership and strategic action we will decrease the risk factors indicated in substance use and increase the protective factors that are known to support youth to make healthy and safe choices.
