Hudson County Prevention Hub

For youth and families to thrive in a safe and healthy environment, communities must address the numerous risk factors that lead to the early use of alcohol and other drugs, often the first step on a path to addiction.

The statewide system of Prevention Hubs provides evidence-based prevention education, interventions, strategies, and programs to support all sectors of our community, including youth, parents, schools, law enforcement, faith-based organizations, etc.

The Prevention Hub of Hudson County is hosted by Partners in Prevention and connects residents and professionals with prevention resources and services, building resilience in our local communities.

Changing Systems to Promote Youth Wellness

One of the most effective ways to positively impact our community is through policy changes. There are many policies already in place to help protect the general health, wellness, and safety of our community. Across all ages, there has been a rise in negative mental health conditions that were reported during the COVID-19 pandemic, specifically among our youth. As we move forward as a county, state, and country, there is a need to focus on promoting wellness among our youth population. Provided below are highlighted resources and information:
