Passages Malibu Celebrates National Prevention Week and Promotes Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health Awareness
Date:5/12/2013

Malibu, CA (PRWEB) May 12, 2013

The Passages Addiction Treatment Centers, located in Malibu and Ventura, California, are pleased to support and acknowledge National Prevention Week this May 12-17. This year marks the second annual National Prevention Week put on by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

National Prevention Week is dedicated to increasing public awareness about substance abuse and other mental health issues. Each year, individuals, healthcare providers, treatment centers, and community organizations work together to encourage prevention efforts, raise awareness, and endorse access to mental health services. The slogan for 2013 is “Your voice. Your choice. Make a difference.”

“Prevention week is a great way to spread awareness about underage drinking, prescription drug abuse, and more,” said Pax Prentiss, CEO and co-founder of Passages Malibu and Passages Ventura.

This year’s National Prevention Week’s themes are:
Sunday, May 12 – Smoking Prevention and Cessation
Monday May 13 – Prevention of Underage Drinking
Tuesday, May 14 – Prevention of Prescription and Illegal Drug Abuse
Wednesday, May 15 – Prevention of Alcohol Abuse and Alcohol Related Illnesses
Thursday, May 16 – Suicide Prevention
Friday, May 17 – Promotion of Mental, Emotional, and Behavioral Well-Being

“Prevention and education are two key factors in effectively and permanently reducing substance abuse across the country,” added Prentiss. “At Passages, we are very fortunate to participate in this event and to have the opportunity to shed more light on these important issues.”
