Through funding from the Illinois Department of Human Services the Chestnut Health Systems Central Region Prevention office provides the communities in Logan County and Mason County with prevention services. These services range from assisting local community prevention coalitions in the strategic prevention framework, youth prevention education classes, implementation of parent-focused alcohol prevention campaign and a prescription drug disposal campaign within both counties.
