To check the use of alcohol, marijuana and other drugs, particularly among youngsters, 36 community based prevention programs have been funded by the Bureau of Substance Abuse Services. Specific areas and communities have been chosen by each of these programs to curb substance abuse.
To help the people affected by substance abuse, their families and communities, the BSAS finances 3 Youth Intervention Programs, which focus on individuals who are still in the early stages of drug abuse or are at high risk of falling prey to it.
The Massachusetts Geriatric Substance Abuse Task Force addresses the problem of substance abuse among the elderly. Professionals from the field of both substance abuse and elder services get together on this platform and exchange information which helps them tackle this problem in a more systematic manner.
The Health Promotion and Disease Prevention (HPDP) helps initiate changes that lead to the creation of a healthier environment conducive to the growth and prosperity of the individuals. A healthier environment lowers the risk of developing chronic and lifestyle related diseases also works toward removing disparities in the availability of health services.
Individuals who are suffering from chronic conditions are provided education in personal health and individualized care plans that help them manage their conditions in a dignified manner. Group discussions are also encouraged, so that people can come together and share their experiences.
Condition specific guidelines are provided to healthcare individuals to deal with conditions like diabetes, adult and pediatric asthma, cancer (particularly colorectal cancer), heart disease, strokes, etc.
This division of the HPDP works in tandem with various academic institutions, nonprofit organizations, community based coalitions, healthcare centers and hospitals and other government agencies to deliver quality services to motivate people to adopt a healthier lifestyle that will keep them away from lifestyle related diseases. Those already suffering from such diseases have a better healthcare system and better services at their disposal.

Being a lifeguard has its perks and one of it is the knowledge and training on proper CPR. Brandon Prentis works as a lifeguard, but he never thought his training will be used in an apartment building, where Caleb Huntington collapsed due to cardiac arrest. The 19-year-old immediately began chest compressions while Meng Howe Lime, Huntington’s friend, called 911 for help. When paramedics arrived, Brandon was doing so well that they ordered him to keep going while they prepare the defibrillator. Huntington was rushed into the hospital and was expected to recover fully after cardiac undergoing rehabilitation. The victim was eternally grateful to the lifeguard.
