A collaborative between the Alliance and Oakland University, to increase outreach to college students in an effort to reduce high risk drinking and misuse of other substances while integrating wellness practices and relevant resources.
Pioneering social change in the realm of health and wellness, the Alliance strives to reduce the fear of complimentary therapies and empower individuals and families to take care of their health in holistic and sustainable ways. This “Culture of Health” provides support services for the integration of health and wellness into community outreach practices by providing knowledge and skills.
In an effort to engage youth in prevention and coalition leadership, the Alliance began a youth initiative in 2016. With input from young people from across Oakland County, PEEPs (Peers Educating and Empowering Peers) was formed. This unique group brings together coalition youth members to promote healthy lifestyles through prevention education across Oakland County with a special focus on youth empowering events.
