Drug prevention has always been the work of passionate people joining together to benefit society as a whole. Two organizations on the front lines, MATFORCE and the Arizona National Guard, identified the communities of Surprise and El Mirage as areas with rising drug activity but a lack of drug prevention efforts.
In 2022, they helped establish United Prevention, a drug prevention coalition working to leverage the amazing people, families, businesses, and organizations of both communities to increase community health.
As a drug prevention coalition, United Prevention works with leaders of the community and the community itself to implement evidence-based solutions that create stronger and healthier youth and families. When youth and families thrive, everyone benefits.
We are Stronger Together.
