One of our primary goals is to prevent alcohol and drug use among women of childbearing years and women currently pregnant. To achieve this goal, we have formed partnerships with many of the treatment centers in the state who treat these women. Additionally, SAPTA partners with the twelve community prevention coalitions in Nevada, all of which educate their communities on the risks of using alcohol, tobacco and nicotine, and other drugs, especially during pregnancy.
Across the state there are several pregnancy centers that are screening pregnant women and women of childbearing years for the risk of prenatal substance use. If at risk, these women are given brief interventions and referrals to treatment centers in their community.
