Strategic Prevention Framework - Partnership for Success (SPF-PFS)

The Strategic Prevention Framework – Partnerships for Success (SPF-PFS) program aims to use the strategic prevention framework model to address two prevention priorities: underage drinking (UAD) and prescription drug misuse. Specifically, the SPF-PFS program focuses on the following goals:

  • Reduce underage drinking (UAD) among 12 to 20 year olds
  • Reduce prescription (Rx) drug misuse and abuse in 12 to 25 year olds
  • Promote emotional health and wellness to prevent or delay the onset of/complications from substance abuse and mental illness while identifying and responding to emerging behavioral health issues

Guided by the understanding that Culture Is Prevention, the SPF-PFS program provides training, technical assistance, and resources to increase community capacity to address substance misuse through culturally responsive programming.

The SPF-PFS program is in its final year of a five-year grant funded through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
