Bring Prevention To Your Community.

Prevention First prepares professionals to bring the models, strategies, and competencies that make prevention work back to their communities. Our courses help prevention specialists:

  • Build effective coalitions to prevent substance use.
  • Develop effective strategic prevention plans.
  • Select and implement evidence-based programs, practices, and policies.
  • Implement substance use programming to offenders.
  • Prepare for CADC certification.
  • Evaluate their efforts to ensure progress in achieving goals.

Training Options.

  • Classroom-based (instructor-led) training offers a guided, interactive learning experience where participants and facilitators can discuss new information and practice new skills.
  • Virtual classroom (instructor-led, online) training offers participants a guided, interactive learning experience outside of the Prevention First classroom.
  • Self-paced training (self-study) allows participants to complete the material on their time.
  • Interactive webinars allow structured learning from any location via a computer or phone.
