Partnership for Success
The Youth Responsibility program at Tri-County is a community wide plan to reduce teen alcohol and marijuana use in Johnston. The Town of Johnston, in partnership with Tri-County, was one of the 12 Rhode Island communities to receive the Partnership for Success Grant, administered by BHDDH, and awarded from the SAMHSA/Center for Substance Abuse Prevention to fund high-need communities. The funds will be used to implement evidence-based practices, policies and programs to prevent substance use.
Tri-County serves as the administrating agency for the grant, overseeing the implementation of the drug abuse program as outlined in the PFS application.
