Connection and Education for a Healthier Community

From small-group sessions to Community Conversations, SCAT is dedicated to educating the Sylvania community on the latest in drug and alcohol prevention and other youth-related topics (e.g., screen time, vaping, stress, depression). We spread awareness about what to look for, how to stop problems before they start, and how to create a healthy, safe environment for a better overall community.

Don't Be a Party to Teenage Drinking

Did you know party hosts can be held responsible for the death of or injuries to intoxicated minors who were given alcohol by the host or even consumed alcohol at a party the host consented to? In short, being a party to teenage drinking is against the law. As adults, we need to make good choices just as we expect of our children. Take our Parent Pledge, learn about teen party guidelines, and read about parent host legal, health, and safety issues.

Maintaining Community Responsibility

Drug and alcohol prevention means keeping tabs on those who are the gatekeepers of our children's wellbeing. SCAT is committed to making sure local businesses and other entities are staying responsible and compliant when it comes to not serving and selling alcohol to minors.
