HEARTS for Families

HEARTS for Families, Inc. is dedicated to the prevention of underage drinking through the Implementation of strategies specific to communities throughout the state of Georgia.
HEARTS for Families has been preventing substance abuse and substance use in youth for approximately 20 years.  We have seen families reconnect with one another, teens be more prepared to make those life-changing decisions, and communities embrace a prevention mindset offering varieties of programs and services to its members.  The Alcohol Prevention Project has broadened our reach to many rural communities not otherwise served by HEARTS.  We want to take this opportunity to thank the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities, Office of Behavioral Health Prevention for its support throughout these many years.  They have envisioned Georgia as drug-free and are working with many community partners like HEARTS and MSACD from across the state to address the issue.   As we always say, In Georgia Prevention Works.  Please join us as we work together for a better Georgia.
