What We Do
The Fort Bend Community Prevention Coalition (FBCPC), a program of Fort Bend Regional Council on Substance Abuse, Inc., serves a vital role in protecting the health and welfare of youth, families, and community members within the Fort Bend Independent School District service area.
Coalition members of varied backgrounds, levels of expertise and commitment have come together to address factors, such as ease of access to drugs and alcohol, low perception of the risks associated with using, and negative peer influence, that are proven to increase adolescent substance use rates. As a result of these community changes, students’ risk of a host of problems that could threaten their bright futures will be decreased.
By pooling their knowledge and resources, coalition members are effectively and efficiently working to reduce youth access to alcohol, marijuana and prescription drugs, and foster a community expectation that youth will stay alcohol and other drug free.
