Multiple Milestones in 2019


In October, STEPS leads an effort that results in Southington becoming the fourth municipality in Connecticut to pass Tobacco 21, which makes it law that you must be 21 to purchase tobacco, electronic cigarettes, or vaping products in Connecticut. STEPS launches its Don’t Trash Your Stash campaign with a local refuse company. STEPS launches a PSA on prescription medications. The town of Southington fully funds and sustains a full-time Youth Prevention Coordinator position, which shows the impact that STEPS has on the community.
