The Brockton Area Prevention Collaborative serves the towns of Bridgewater, Brockton, East Bridgewater, Hanson, Raynham, Rockland, and Whitman. Its mission is to save lives from substance use and prevent the damage it can do to individuals, families and the local community. To do this, we educate young people with accurate information and tools to cope with life's challenges, and to help them understand the harmful effects of drugs and alcohol. We connect individuals and families with the resources they need to become better informed. And we work with leaders in the community to build a system of support in every neighborhood.
