Drug and alcohol prevention is key to maintaining a healthy community. Substance abuse is something Samantha takes seriously and she tries her best to work towards its prevention. Drug and alcohol abuse is a problem, no matter who you are, where you are, or your age. We can work to limiting this problem and try our best to eliminate it in our communities. To do so it is important to promote prevention. Studies have shown that high quantities of alcohol and drugs lead to domestic violence. Samantha wants her community to be drug free and the abuse to stop. She believes this will create a better environment in my community and for the strength of her community to grow.
