This campaign reminds adults who are purchasing liquor to not share with anyone under the age of 21.  Thank you to the liquor stores in Johnston and North Providence who partnered with us this 4th of July!

Parents are receiving prevention materials at first year orientations this summer!

Johnston Prevention implemented the Pick Your No’s initiative at Ferri Middle School in June. An important way to teach students how to refuse substances and other difficult situations. 

Escape the Vape!

Students at Ferri Middle School participated in the Escape the Vape at the holiday dance on December 9th!

The vaping prevention themed escape room is a unique method to help educate students, teachers, parents, and others about vaping: an escape room.

Escape the Vape puts players in real-life escape game where they must work together in a race against the clock to solve a series of puzzles. Be prepared to have your wits tested and your entertainment level raised when you try to escape – and you will learn some interesting facts about vaping along the way!
