ST. JOHNSBURY — A grant from the Vermont Department of Health, Division of Substance Use Programs is helping the Northeast Prevention Coalition (NPC) launch a new website that will offer more information and resources related to substance use, misuse and abuse prevention. It will also help increase its online presence and brand recognition. “The coalition wanted a website so we could provide community members with an online option for learning more about prevention,” Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital (NVRH) Substance Misuse Prevention Coordinator and coalition member Carolyn Towne said. The website is a resource for anyone in the community searching for substance misuse prevention tools. It may also help anyone who wants to support prevention in their community, has an interest in attending or volunteering at an event or simply wants to learn more about what’s happening locally regarding prevention.
