Strategic Prevention Framework Partnerships For Success

Communities of Practice in Southeast Ohio

The SPF-PFS is a federally funded substance abuse and prevention initiative that builds workforce capacity and prevention system infrastructure. Beginning in Federal Fiscal Year 2020, two community-based substance abuse prevention coalitions in Appalachian, Ohio became subrecipients under a five-year award. The Adams County Medical and Foundation and Impact Prevention, Inc. in Lawrence County have partnered to form a community of practice and are leveraging coordination from Ohio University's Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs and the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation.
