November 25, 2019

This resource is the first installment in a series, Key Elements of Effective Coalitions, which has been developed for prevention practitioners and community coalition members by the Prevention Technology Transfer Center Network. The goal of this series is to provide information on key elements that research suggests are critical for coalitions to operate effectively and increase their impact on substance misuse and its consequences for individuals and communities.

Contributing Network workgroup members represented the Northwest, Central East, Southeast, Northeast & Caribbean, New England and the National American Indian & Alaska Native Prevention Technology Transfer Centers.
