Prevention

 

The BBHHF has established a substance abuse prevention, treatment and recovery infrastructure with county alignment through a configuration of six Regional Task Force .  The prevention infrastructure, led by six Prevention Lead Organizations, establishes regional and statewide prevention collaborations that provide funding and technical support to local prevention coalitions in all 55 counties in West Virginia.  All prevention grantees implement the following strategies: information dissemination, prevention education, community mobilization, environmental strategies, alternatives for youth, and problem identification and referral.  All counties are required to complete SAMHSA's Strategic Prevention Framework planning model to identify needs and match evidence-based programs and practices.
