BestCare has a dynamic Prevention Program in Jefferson County:

Substance Abuse Prevention – BestCare Prevention uses all six of the proven Prevention Strategies listed by the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention, which include:  Sharing Information, Educating Youth and Adults, Providing opportunities for youth and adults to participate in drug- and alcohol-free activities, Identifying and referring individuals who need help, Bringing key stakeholders together, and Establishing Local Changes that promote wellness.

Problem Gambling Prevention – Did you know that 1.3 percent of Oregon youth are problem gamblers and 4.6 percent are at-risk gamblers? There are between 1,100 and 6,300 adolescents with severe gambling-related difficulties (Volberg, 2007).

In Jefferson County:

    • 34% of 11th-grade students gambled in the past 30 days (sports, video games, dares, etc).

    • 8% of 11th-grade students who gambled felt bad later.

Suicide Prevention –  Through local community members  who are certified trainers, free training is available to community members on Suicide Prevention, Postvention (to reduce risk and promote healing after a suicide loss), and Youth Leaders who train other youth in suicide prevention. Some items contained in prevention’s website include:

Suicide Loss & Healing

Grief & Healing

Children & Grief

Teens & Grief


Free, Confidential Online Mental Health Screenings

Mental Health First Aid – Mental Health First Aid teaches participants how to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders in our community.

Youth Mental Health First Aid  – Youth Mental Health First Aid is designed to teach parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human services workers, and other caring citizens how to help an adolescent (age 12-18) who is experiencing a mental health or addictions challenge or is in crisis. Youth Mental Health First Aid is primarily designed for adults who regularly interact with young people. The course introduces common mental health challenges for youth, reviews typical adolescent development, and teaches a 5-step action plan for how to help young people in both crisis and non-crisis situations.

Topics covered include:​

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Substance use

  • Disorders in which psychosis may occur

  • Disruptive behavior disorders (including AD/HD), and eating disorders

Trauma Resilience – A community-based approach to transform potentially toxic stress into tolerable stress.
