The Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Team is a community coalition that is focused on reducing alcohol access to minors by utilizing Environmental Prevention strategies. The Environmental Prevention approach seeks to create an alcohol environment that supports healthy, safe behavior. This type of prevention uses strategies which address the context of alcohol-related community problems. Our prevention team focuses on changing policies, settings, and comprehensive effort, we hope that we will see a reduction in the number of alcohol-related problems among the youth in the San Ramon Valley.
Meetings typically held the second week of the month.

PERMANENT DROP OFF SITES FOR UNWANTED/UNUSED/EXPIRED MEDICATION
(can be dropped off during departments'/sites' business hours)
Proper disposal of prescription medications prevent them from being misused. We can all help save lives and protect our environment by properly storing and disposing of our unused and unwanted medication.
Many local police departments have take-back boxes but additional convenient take-back locations have been added throughout the county for residents to dispose of expired or unwanted medications.
