Gabe has worked in the field of adolescent alcohol and other drug prevention since 2003. He is a member of the Ventura County Rx Abuse & Heroin Workgroup and brings a focus on youth education and prevention. Ventura County Office of Education provided two secondary schools with support in Prescription Drug and Heroin prevention education measures. The Prescription Drug Media Campaign targeted high-school age youth, to impact awareness, prescription drug use and intended behaviors.

The Prescription Drug Pilot Project attempts to demonstrate changes in perception of harm, increased awareness of known risks, and associated levels of drug use. Parent brochures provide families with tips on identifying and understanding painkiller and heroin abuse.
