CCCA Secures Additional VTSF Funding
The Commonwealth Center for Children and Adolescents has been awarded a new grant for fiscal year 2007 from the Virginia Tobacco Settlement Foundation (VTSF) in the amount of $29,313. Funds will be used to continue tobacco use prevention efforts and substance abuse treatment programs at the center. CCCA was first awarded tobacco settlement funds in July, 2002 and implemented tobacco awareness activities and smoking cessation groups for youth admitted to the facility and augmented substance abuse evaluation and treatment services. The program is designed to increase participants’ awareness of the short and long term effects of tobacco, alcohol, marijuana and other drugs and increase adolescents’ motivation to stop using mood altering chemicals.
The Commonwealth Center for Children & Adolescents is a State-operated child and adolescent inpatient psychiatric facility operated and licensed by the VA Department of Mental Health, Mental Retardation & Substance Abuse Services (DMHMRSAS), providing emergency psychiatric evaluation, and stabilization to Virginia’s youth from ages four up to eighteen years.
The Commonwealth Center is proud to be an active participant in the statewide effort to prevent and reduce the use of tobacco products by youth in Virginia.
