OSWEGO - Substance abuse is preventable. Studies show that substance abuse is indeed preventable among children and teens when they hear consistent messages about drugs and alcohol from their parents, teachers, peers, and community leaders.

For more than 50 years Farnham Family Services has provided Oswego County with solutions to the problems created by substance abuse. The ultimate solution is prevention. Through outreach to elementary, middle and high school students, as well as parents and other community members, Farnham’s prevention services offers education, counseling, and support that encourages individuals to avoid the pitfalls of substance abuse.
