CHIP Youth Substance Use Prevention Work

CHIP 2021-2023 Goal: Support the Communities That Care Coalition in its efforts to delay the age at first use of addictive substances for all youth, with a particular focus on those disproportionately affected, including LGBTQ youth, youth of color, youth from families with low incomes and DCF-involved youth.

The priorities of the 2021-23 CHIP include increasing the age at first use of addictive substances in our region.  To implement the strategies in our action plan, the CHIP is working through the Communities That Care Coalition.  We encourage all interested parties to visit the Coalition’s website to get involved at:
