The Family Service Agency has Regional Prevention Resource Center.
Region 9 is made up of Lonoke, Prairie, Pulaski, and Saline Counties.
The Prevention Resource Center (PRC) provides assistance to communities in developing pro-active (prevention) approaches to reducing risk associated with violence, alcohol, tobacco, and other drug abuse. Services include two clearinghouses for brochures, education, and training for both youth and adult leaders and assistance in program development.
Prevention reduces the risk of unhealthy behaviors while fostering safe, productive environments. Successful prevention leads to the reduction of crime, automobile fatalities, sexually transmitted diseases, teen pregnancy, addiction, child abuse, family breakups, and violence.
