Substance Prevention Alliance of Needham

Vision & Mission


Needham is a cohesive community that supports all of our youth to grow and develop to be substance free and healthy in mind, body and spirit. 

Our Mission 

The Coalition incorporates 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.
