 March 26th      The Path to Community Change WEBCAST     1-2pm EDT


 One approach involves environmental strategies, and we're not talking recycling. Environmental strategies are prevention approaches that can change the environment in which substance abuse can occur. It's more than just a one-time program, its changing a community. That takes work.     During the hour-long CADCA-TV broadcast, The Path to Community Change, learn what environmental strategies are and how to implement them. See how Weed & Seed sites in Atlanta have changed during the past three years and learn from their successes and setbacks.
