Prevention Services

Prevention Services is a Town funded program of Youth & Family Services working in close collaboration with the School Department and the Bedford Police Department.

The focus of prevention services is on tobacco, alcohol, and drug awareness education for the children, youth and adults in Bedford. Educational resources are available for any Bedford resident.

Some of the services provided by the Prevention Services Coordinator include oversight of the biannual Youth Risk Behavior Survey, implementation of drug and ETOH education program as well as diversion services for those eligible youth, coordination of Substance Abuse Awareness month, and coordination of the Safe Homes program.
