Gathering information on and supporting useful research into substance abuse prevention strategies, and support prevention programs across the spectrum of geography, age, and demographics.
This portion of our effort will draw together prevention strategies across our society, especially in schools, colleges and universities, and in the workplace. There are a large number of prevention programs out there. We believe more creativity and more capacity must be applied to these efforts, and they must be conducted all the way down to the community level. We will look for best practices at every level, and help spread them across the appropriate segments of our society. We will also closely follow the federal government’s stated goal, announced by the president in late October 2017, of beginning an effective prevention campaign. We also hope to highlight what is being done in each state regarding prevention programs.
