DeKalb County/ Rockdale CountyDeKalb and Rockdale counties are neighboring counties in Georgia. BTB operates in all of Rockdale County and city of Lithonia/Stonecrest in DeKalb County.
We operate under the Alcohol and Substance Abuse Prevention Project (ASAPP) to reduce the early onset of alcohol and marijuana use in 9-20 years olds. We offer Life Skills classes to youth and their parents to give them tools on how to succeed in life given certain situations and circumstances around them. After completion of classes, we hold a graduation ceremony because we love to celebrate our youth. In addition to classes, we provide awareness campaigns. Here are some examples:
“⅔ Youth in Rockdale County think education is a way to prevent the early onset if alcohol and marijuana use.” (Billboards)
But not only do we offer those prevention methods, but we do other things that to prevent substance abuse. For instance, Suicide Training for community members, bullying seminars for youth, Character building workshop, etc.
We understand that the youth is our future and we know peer pressure and other factors influence their choices. We want to provide youth and parents with resources to help them succeed in life.
