Substance Abuse Prevention

NCHP has extensive experience in providing education regarding substance abuse.

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).

Who We Are

Formerly Border Health Foundation (BHF), we recently changed our name to National Community Health Partners (NCHP) to reflect the expansion and scope of our services.

Based in Tucson, Arizona, with a regional office in New Orleans, our organization was founded in 1984 to address the health needs of border populations. Since then we have developed a strong national presence providing education and services to minority and underserved populations in 44 states and two U.S. territories.

We have housed over 70 public health programs and services promoting the health and well-being of individuals and communities across the U.S. It is our goal to improve health outcomes through innovative services and compelling educational programs.

NCHP provides training and technical assistance to community based organizations and health departments serving minority populations at risk for HIV/AIDS. We implement programs that educate teens and parents about sensitive issues related to drugs and alcohol, premature sexual activity, and juvenile delinquency. We provide services addressing substance abuse, tobacco cessation, environmental health, nutrition and positive family relationships.

National Community Health Partners is prepared to assist your organization.
