A Prevention Planning/Leadership team that includes representatives from health care, business, education, family supports, law enforcement, and government, substance use disorder service providers, and individuals meets regularly and provides direction to the prevention initiatives in the county.  The Carroll County Prevention Network is committed to promoting environmental and other practices to prevent substance misuse, advocating for behavioral health resources for Carroll County citizens, and supporting the Carroll County recovering community.
