Alcohol & Substance Abuse Prevention
The Santa Fe County DWI Program provides evidence-based prevention services for children and adults in the community. All prevention services are targeted to address substance use and risky behaviors, such as drinking and driving. The goal of our prevention efforts are to challenge societal norms around alcohol consumption, encourage behavioral change, increase protective factors, provide education on substance use and provide access to relevant services for community members. The Santa Fe County DWI Program collaborates with multiple local agencies to address the indicators stated above. In FY23 and FY24 we partnered with the following agencies:
Santa Fe Public Schools ( Student Wellness - Santa Fe Public Schools (sfps.info)
Team Builders- Behavioral Health Services
Reading Quest (readingquestcenter.org)
Pojoaque Valley Schools
Sombrillo Elementary School
Edgewood School District-Prevention Support in FY24
The partnership with Pojoaque Valley School District is unique. The Santa Fe County DWI Program provides direct support through our Prevention Specialist using evidence-based curriculums implemented at the intermediate school. Gender specific services are provided at Pojoaque Valley Middle School.
The Program also provides direct prevention services at Sombrillo Elementary school using the same curriculums utilized at Pojoaque Valley Intermediate School.
Our Prevention Specialists lead various nationally recognized DWI Prevention initiatives in our community such as, Red Ribbon Week and Sticker Shock.
