We are proud to announce the creation of the PREVENTION IDAHO FOUNDATION, our very own public-private partnership in coordination with Idaho Office of Drug Policy and the State Prevention Partnership.
Foundational Purpose: "Idaho seeks to raise awareness of and promote action on preventing and reducing the illicit use and misuse of drugs and alcohol with a unified, committed effort among state, federal, and local agencies, civic groups, and businesses and assist communities in addressing this important public health and safety concern."
With the Prevention Idaho Foundation in place, the Office of Drug Policy and State Prevention Partnership are very excited to move forward with our business approach to Alcohol and Substance Abuse Prevention.
The McClain Companies helped us execute a "presentation plan" and "go-to-market strategy" for a campaign surrounding the internal and external communications and marketing of a statewide program targeting parents and kids. This program will motivate and teach best practices as it relates to alcohol and drug abuse.
