Local Prevention Councils (LPCs)

In CT, each municipality has a Local Prevention Council (LPC) whose goal is to increase public awareness of Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug (ATOD) prevention and to stimulate the development and implementation of local prevention activities, with a primary focus on youth. Many also address social-emotional health, recognizing the strong relationship between substance misuse and mental health disorders.

LPCs are coalitions consisting of stakeholders from 12 identified sectors. The Hub supports LPCs through regional coordination, technical assistance, and funding, including the recent Strategic Opioid Response grants.
