Reid's goal is to reduce and prevent substance abuse in our community. He and his staff work with the Washington County School District through programs such as the personal empowerment program (PEP) and the state mandated Prevention Dimensions. He believes it is a collaborative effort with representatives from all sectors of the community to be involved in awareness and play a role in the prevention of substance abuse. The Washington County Prevention Coalition and the Washington County Youth Coalition are part of that effort.
The Southwest Behavioral Health Center, located in St. George, serves a five-county area, is tasked from the state of Utah to provide mental health and substance abuse treatment services with offices in Beaver, Garfield, Iron, Kane and Washington Counties. The goal is four-fold: education, prevention, treatment and aftercare services.
