Session 1: Introduction to SAMHSA 4E’s Modern and Comprehensive Prevention System


SAMHSA recently introduced the 4 E’s as a “Modern and Comprehensive Prevention System” to support the work of prevention providers in States and communities. The 4 E’s: Early Action, Easy Access, Equitable Opportunities and Effective Delivery, provide a vital system for ensuring that prevention efforts are planned an implemented in an equitable and effective manner. In this 2-part “Learning Lab” series, we will describe and explore a) how the 4 E’s can be applied in prevention work and b) how the 4 E’s can be implemented throughout the Strategic Prevention Framework.


Participants will be able to:

  • Describe how the 4 E’s describe a modern and comprehensive prevention system
  • Explore how the 4 E’s relate to their work as preventionists
  • Provide insights into how the 4 E’s can be operationalized in their work
