National Inhalant Prevention Coalition

Synergies, a non-profit corporation based in Austin, Texas, founded the National Inhalant Prevention Coalition (NIPC) in 1992. The NIPC grew from a state-wide prevention project in Texas called the Texas Prevention Partnership which began in 1990. NIPC is a public-private effort to promote awareness and recognition of the under publicized problem of inhalant use. The NIPC is led by Synergies, a non-profit corporation, located in Austin, Texas. The NIPC serves as an inhalant referral and information clearinghouse, stimulates media coverage about inhalant issues, develops informational materials, produces ViewPoint (a quarterly newsletter), provides training and technical assistance and leads a week-long national grassroots inhalant education and awareness campaign. NIPC works with state agencies, schools, businesses, trade associations, media, civic organizations, law enforcement, Poison Control Centers and interfaith groups throughout the country to educate and devise multifaceted awareness and prevention campaigns designed to educate youth and adults about the debilitating effects of these dangerous gateway drugs. NIPC also provides inservice training for educators. Through NIPC's quarterly newsletter, resource bank, media relations, targeted initiatives and national contacts, NIPC puts organizations and individuals in touch with the latest research, the best ideas and news of successful programs to enhance local efforts. NIPC can be reached at: National Inhalant Prevention Coalition 2904 Kerbey Lane Austin, Texas 78703 phone: 800.269.4237 or 512.480.8953 fax: 512.477.3932 or e-mail:
