Bedford, NY 10506

In 1970, a group of concerned parents came together to help prevent drug and alcohol abuse by children and adults. The group dedicated to prevention and intervention works with the community, schools and parent groups in our area to develop educational programs concerning parenting, mental health issues and prevention of substance abuse. Outside speakers are engaged to give presentations that are open to the community. These are announced in the local papers or on flyers distributed in the community. A newsletter is published entitled, "Of Substance", and is mailed to all residents of this area. Anyone residing in Bedford, Lewisboro, or Pound Ridge, may become a member. Their meetings are held at the Bedford Presbyterian Church on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 7:30 P .M., September through June. All are welcome to attend.
