Awareness Campaigns

San Diego County has launched several awareness campaigns to combat drug and alcohol abuse. The Alcohol and Drug Services division runs focused initiatives like the Marijuana Prevention Initiative, educating youth on the impacts of marijuana use. Community coalitions like the Central Region Prevention Coalition and North City Prevention Coalition mobilize residents to influence policies and raise awareness.

The Law Enforcement Against Drugs (L.E.A.D.) program trains police officers and teachers to deliver evidence-based drug prevention curricula in schools. These community-driven efforts aim to educate San Diegans, especially youth, about the dangers of substance abuse and promote healthy lifestyles.

Legislative Measures

San Diego has implemented various legislative measures to address drug addiction. The county’s Drug Medi-Cal Organized Delivery System (DMC-ODS) provides low-income residents access to substance abuse treatment services like outpatient care, residential treatment, and medication-assisted treatment.

Law enforcement agencies like the San Diego City Attorney’s Office have launched diversion programs like PLEADS and S.M.A.R.T. to offer treatment instead of prosecution for low-level drug offenders.
