Substance abuse prevention programs receive grants from county agency

February 07, 1997

Two Arnold organizations that created their own substance abuse prevention programs were awarded grants by Anne Arundel County Department of Health's Prevention Services.

The Parent-Teen Network, which plans activities for teen-agers and promotes community group and school networks to help prevent drug problems, received $2,500.

Since October, the organization has sponsored six workshops in conjunction with the Adult Dare Education Program at Severna Park Elementary School.

Camp Blaze was awarded a $5,000 grant for instituting a parent training program that provides sessions on leadership, nurturing and substance abuse prevention through seminars, parent/child interactions and role-playing.

The organization also is working with Annapolis Gardens residents to organize a parent-child weekend retreat in the spring.

The Prevention Services grants are offered annually to nonprofit organizations to develop community-based drug and alcohol abuse prevention programs. The grants range from $2,500 to $5,000.
