Bear River Health Department
The Bear River Health Department is the local substance abuse authority for Cache, Rich, and Box Elder counties. Our mission is threefold: preventing and controlling disease and disability; protecting the individual, community, and environment; and promoting, maintaining, and improving healthy lifestyles.
The Bear River Health Department provides substance abuse prevention services to the citizens of these three counties through school-based programs, family interventions, environmental strategies, and community partnerships. Bear River’s prevention staff utilizes the Strategic Prevention Framework to assess, plan, implement, and evaluate effective prevention strategies to decrease risk and increase protection-to ultimately reduce alcohol, tobacco and other drug abuse and misuse across all ages.
