About Pathway to Prevention

The primary mission of Pathway to Prevention is the prevention and early intervention of teenage drug and alcohol use and abuse. Our vision is one of entire communities of teens who “Choose not to Use!”

The organization was founded by a group of mothers concerned about widespread substance abuse by teens who didn’t comprehend the significant dangers posed by innocent “experimentation.” One devoted mother and grandmother, Marjorie Lyte, served as an inspiration for her daughter to co-found Pathway to Prevention.  Donations in Marjorie’s honor and memory will help her live on in our work.

Pathway to Prevention educates teens and parents via the Emmy winning film Collision Course – Teen Addiction Epidemic.

Pathway to Prevention creates awareness and educates communities as part of Full Circle Treatment Center, a Sacramento-area non-profit organization that offers early intervention and treatment of adolescent substance abuse. Our fiscal agent is Community Recovery Resources (CoRR).
