Prevention Services

SouthLight Healthcare’s Prevention Team works closely with Wake County Public Schools through the Alternative Counseling Education (ACE) program. ACE is provided to reduce long-term suspensions by providing drug education free of charge for first-time offenders of the school’s drug and alcohol policy.


Our Prevention Team works with a number of other community agencies and churches to promote youth substance use awareness and prevention strategies. Our Speakers Bureau presentation series is designed to meet the needs of diverse groups and address not only substance abuse but also social issues in the community that we serve:
