The Cochiti Pueblo Tribal Prevention Program has been in existence since July 2013. During that time a coalition has been formed which consists of approximately 25 community members. The coalition has made a lot of progress including:
- Choosing a priority: Preventing youth from drinking alcohol before the age of thirteen.
- Picking a mission statement: In respect to our cultural and traditional principles, we will be working as a community to prevent and reduce the number of youth who who have had or have thought of having their first drink before the age of thirteen.
- Picking a vision statement: Creating healthy family relationships in an alcohol and drug-free community so our people can thrive.
Presently, there are some strategic plans put in place to help prevent underage drinking and will be implemented to help youth parents and community members to better understand the issues in our community. We are located in the tribal office buildings and can be reached at 465-3142.
