NCHP Substance Abuse Prevention Project Highlights
Conducting HIV/AIDS outreach to people who inject drugs and their sexual partners in Yuma County, Arizona. NCHP conducted thorough assessments of participant risk behaviors, established risk reduction goals, and referred participants to services and treatment facilities. These efforts were made possible through funding from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
Implementing the "Border CAPT" project with funding from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). NCHP provided substance abuse and HIV/AIDS prevention services along the U.S.-Mexico border region as well as capacity building services to state and local health departments and community-based organizations working with drug users and other “at risk” populations.
Providing education to adolescents and parents in Santa Cruz County, Arizona with funding from the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP). Project goals of reducing adolescent alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use were achieved using evidence-based interventions such as "Preparing for the Drug-Free Years" (a curriculum for parents) and "Media Sharp" (a program that teaches adolescents about how the media and popular culture influence perceptions about drug use).
