"I have always found the Center for Prevention Services (by any other name also) to be a very collaborative agency. As an agency you have been involved in just about any important prevention activity I can think of in the community. It is always a pleasure to work with you."
~ Agency partner
"The philosophy and theory on which the CPS programs are based incorporate authenticity and integrity, and youth discover and strengthen these attributes in their interactions with others. The curricula focus on skills for healthy living and are not only easy to teach but engage youth in the learning process. It is so exciting to see CPS grow and expand services. They are truly on the cutting edge of prevention."
~ Service recipient
"I am writing to express my gratitude for the space in which Prevention Services allows the nurses' in recovery support group to meet each Wed. evening. As you may know, North Carolina does not have many resources in place for nurses in recovery and since moving to NC over 15 years ago, I have found this group to be a tremendous support. I have been fortunate to witness many nurses start their recovery journey in your facility. It is a joy for us to find out that we are not alone. You will never know what a huge service having a safe and healing environment has been to so many. Thank you so much and God bless you."

“This program has been wonderful for my group of students. I believe the material was very appropriate and needed for most. Our students are exposed to a lot and this allowed great discussion between students and me. We benefited specifically from the respect and complement lessons. I think the students had a great time getting to know the facilitators.”
“It was a wonderful program for the kids of our community. Thank you so much for your collaboration.”
