One voice for Tennessee’s substance abuse prevention efforts

The Prevention Alliance of Tennessee (PAT) is an alliance of coalitions across Tennessee who have come together to join forces on substance abuse prevention. The mission of PAT is to inform and advocate for alcohol safety, substance abuse prevention, and public health policy concerns to Tennesseans.

The PAT promotes policies and environmental change that facilitates substance abuse prevention across the state. We work to enhance the coordination and effectiveness of anti-drug coalitions across Tennessee, and to reduce substance use related consequences.

By joining together, we intend to:

Strengthen capacity and infrastructure in support of substance abuse prevention in Tennessee;

Leverage resources by redirecting and realigning funding streams for substance abuse prevention;

Inform and advocate for alcohol safety, substance abuse prevention and public health policy concerns to Tennesseans and lawmakers;

Coordinate the implementation of substance abuse prevention environmental strategies.
