Helping Spread The Message of Substance Abuse Prevention!
The mission of the DeKalb Community PROMISE is to utilize all resources including data collection in the targeted communities to effectively provide prevention programs, effective intervention and/or treatment when appropriate and to reduce substance abuse among youth. Built by Beyond The Bell and the community of DeKalb County, the DeKalb Community PROMISE is a group of representatives from organizations, faith-based communities, non-profits, businesses, and community members who have united to create change within DeKalb County in regards to the prevention of substance abuse among youth. The coalition was formed in 2004 under the name of Beyond The Bell and the Coalition to Prevent Underage Drinking.
Beyond The Bell has begun a community wide campaign based on data collected within our focus communities during FY’14. Our communities include DeKalb County, Rockdale County, Upson County, and Chatham County. This data shows that heavy and binge drinking is somewhat of a concern in DeKalb County, however the data also shows most young adults in DeKalb County avoid alcohol when they are around it. This is positive news and Beyond The Bell is dedicated to providing an awareness campaign using social media to educate young adults 9-20 of the dangers of the use and abuse of alcohol and marijuana.
