Primary Prevention

Twenty percent of the Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant (SABG) is set-aside for Substance Use Disorder (SUD) primary prevention programs.  SABG-funded primary prevention programs include a broad array of prevention strategies directed at individuals not identified to be in need of SUD treatment.  Primary prevention includes strategies, programs and initiatives that reduce both direct and indirect adverse personal, social, health and economic consequences resulting from problematic alcohol and other drug availability, manufacture, distribution, promotion, sales and use.  The desired result of primary prevention is to promote safe and healthy behaviors and environments for individuals, families and communities. 

Strategic Prevention Framework

California's 58 counties are required to develop a Strategic Prevention Plan (SPP) using the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration's Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF). The Department of Health Care Services in collaboration with the Center for Applied Research Solutions, through the Community Prevention Initiative developed resources for counties to successfully develop a SPP.
