What we are all about...

The Prevention Alliance of Tennessee (PAT) is a public health nonprofit working to create healthier a Tennessee by reducing the burden of substance abuse. PAT’s core membership is comprised of over 50 Coalition members who tackle substance abuse issues in their own counties across the state. Together, our alliance fosters collaboration and leverages resources to enhance environmental strategies and targeted statewide services in the fields of substance abuse prevention and public health. PAT Coalitions implement data-driven and evidence-based programs across the state, helping build Tennessee’s capacity to create stronger, healthier communities, families and individuals.


#TNPreventionSaves

Community coalitions are comprised of parents, teachers, law enforcement, businesses, religious leaders, health providers and other community activists who are mobilizing at the local level -- and statewide under the Prevention Alliance umbrella -- to make their communities safer, healthier and drug-free.
