5106.0 Models & Methods For Prevention

Wednesday, October 31, 2012: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
This session looks at models and methods for substance abuse prevention. The Cross-Site Evaluation of the Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant (SPF SIG) program comprised 26 states and territories. With grantees having completed implementation, the focus of the cross-site evaluation is to conduct analysis of outcome data. In 2006, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health was awarded a Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant (SPF-SIG) and identified reducing unintentional fatal and non-fatal opioid overdoses as its primary focus area. In California, pooled data from four longitudinal studies was used to compare patients first treated during young adulthood (age 18-25, 26%) to those first treated at an older age (age >25). In Kansas, community coalitions to prevent adolescent substance abuse receive training and technical assistance by state-funded Regional Prevention Centers.
Session Objectives: Describe programs for prevention of substance abuse. Assess opioid overdose data sources.
