In 2019, Decisions at Every Turn Coalition (DAET) expanded its community programming partnership with the Friends of the Ashland Public Library to the re-envisioned community-wide POWER series. We launched POWER under the mission “to be the unified voice for prevention in Ashland.”

All POWER Programs reflect our mission and uphold the general prevention principles that engage and empower individuals and communities to choose healthy behaviors, including substance use prevention, behavioral health promotion, physical health promotion, and community connectedness.  These programs give community members valuable tools for helping themselves and others live healthier, happier lives, and to bring the whole community together.
