All ProgramsPublic Education and Advocacy

ECCPASA helps to keep public officials, educators, youth mentors and the citizens of Erie County informed of vital issues concerning the risks of alcohol and other drug use through such tools as our website; AwareNews newsletter; Did You Know? advisory bulletins, and regularly-scheduled events.

Presentations are available at a minimal cost for the classroom, non-profit agencies, school or university faculty, school groups and workplace organizations. Topics range from classroom management issues (bullying, self-control, dealing with anger, etc.); drugs in the workplace; media literacy; parenting; substance abuse and the elderly; underage drinking and more.

Other valuable resources we provide FREE of charge include:

  • Video lending library for professionals and school personnel
  • Pamphlets on current substance abuse information
  • Referrals and linkages to other community resources
  • Updates on current public policy issues and trends.
