“I have worked and volunteered in the substance abuse prevention field for over 20 years and have seen amazing changes, especially related to tobacco. We now have a greater understanding about the impact of substances on our communities as well as the science to more appropriately create population-level change. The workforce is growing, the field is becoming more legitimized and citizens are beginning to understand that dependence is a brain disorder and not a lifestyle choice. This is a great time to work in the field of substance abuse prevention and health promotion.”
-Derek Longmeier, President & Founder
