This is the third webinar in the three-part series focused on implementing prevention strategies across the continuum of care. This 90-minute webinar will provide insight and information on how prevention professionals can plan for and implement indicated prevention strategies. Indicated prevention strategies are delivered to populations/groups of individuals who have exhibited high risk behaviors but have not been diagnosed with a substance misuse disorder. It is essential for prevention professionals to understand how to plan for, select, and implement indicated prevention strategies. Indicated prevention strategies can be a part of a comprehensive approach to prevention in your community to help reach desired outcomes.
