Welcome to the Livingston COMMUNITY PREVENTION Project
The Livingston Community Prevention Project (LCPP) is located in Livingston County, Michigan, a relativity rural community of 180,000 residents in Southeast Michigan. The LCPP was formed in 2008 to provide substance abuse prevention services throughout Livingston County.
Karen Bergbower and Associates, Key Development Center, Inc., LACASA, & Livingston County Catholic Charities are the collaborative partners of the LCPP. These agencies work together to implement several prevention programs that have been proven to impact substance use and related problems.
The LCPP Goals Include:
- Delaying the age of first use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs (ATOD),
- Increase the proportion of youth who perceive parental disapproval of ATOD,
- Decrease the proportion of youth and adults who report past month use of ATOD
- Decrease prescription and over-the-counter drug abuse.
The Livingston Community Prevention Project’s programs and activities are strong and include representation from law enforcement, healthcare, businesses, corporations, county health and human services, the judicial system, non-profits, schools, students, residents, and local coalition groups.
