Our brains develop until about age 25. Studies show that the earlier youth use alcohol or other drugs, the more likely they are to have problems with addiction as adults, and the more damage they can do to key parts of their brain – including memory, learning, mood, and mental health.
We all play a role in supporting the health of Sauk County youth. By creating environments that “turn down the heat” in their adolescent brains, we can prevent problems with substance use from boiling over or even starting to simmer.
The Sauk County Partnership For Prevention is an alliance of community members and local organizations that are dedicated to preventing youth vaping, youth alcohol use, and prescription drug misuse for residents of all ages.
Substance misuse is a serious concern in our communities. The Partnership For Prevention is working on a variety of initiatives to help all of our community members reach their full potential.
Keep problems from boiling over. Ensure teen parties are alcohol-free.
Youth are less likely to use marijuana if they know their parents disapprove.

Prescription drugs can be as dangerous to your health as drugs that are made illegally.
