Community and state-level prevention practitioners, allied health partners and community members, working to prevent substance misuse.



Although the rationale for directing limited resources toward “evidence-based” programs is sound, it also presents challenges – especially for American Indian communities where substance abuse prevention resources are critically needed, and yet research is greatly lacking. This webinar will discuss: 1) how best to balance research evidence, cultural relevance, and community needs for selecting evidence-based substance use prevention programs, and 2) how this approach has been applied in Washington State through a collaborative effort between policymakers, researchers, and tribal communities to identify effective substance use prevention programs.
