Substance Abuse Prevention


Family Support Services of Amarillo

Counseling Services | Family Support Services Of Amarillo

At FSS, our substance abuse prevention strategies educate and avert individuals from engaging in behaviors which may lead to unhealthy lifestyles and future substance abuse. To this end, FSS provides a series of educational classes in the community, alternative drug-free activities, youth mentoring, as well as specialized presentations, referrals, and information dissemination.

FSS prevention specialists work together to provide an array of prevention and treatment services on-site and at select schools within the Texas Panhandle. Specialized presentations, referrals, and information dissemination are provided upon request.

Our goal is to educate, support and encourage youth to think about their actions and to become aware that the choices they make affect their future. Eligible youth (12-18) interested in developing strategies for addressing the stresses of adolescence, or any school or organization seeking substance abuse prevention or life skills development services can contact Monica Balderas at 806-342-2536 for more information on our programs, which includes the Strengthening Families program and project ALERT.
