Course Description:
The SAPST provides an introduction to the fundamentals of substance abuse prevention based on the current knowledge and practice in the field. This training is designed to prepare practitioners to reduce the likelihood of substance abuse and promote well-being among individuals, and within families, workplaces, schools, and communities. While the focus is primarily on preventing alcohol, tobacco, and drug abuse, the approach to prevention presented in this training is applicable to other behavioral health issues as well.

The SAPST is a 4-day training that addresses the following primary prevention topics: behavioral health, continuum of care, public health approach, risk and protective factors, developmental perspective, and the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF). Various interactive activities will help participants to understand the foundation of prevention and the SPF five steps (assessment, capacity, planning, implementation and evaluation plus cultural competence and sustainability) and a community case study will help participants apply the framework components to a community situation.
