SUBSTANCE USE DISORDER PREVENTION
The Community Mental Health Partnership of Southeast Michigan (CMHPSM) targets substance abuse prevention needs and strategies to promote healthy communities and individual well-being in Lenawee, Livingston, Monroe and Washtenaw Counties. The CMHPSM provides regional oversight of prevention programs that focus on the following priority areas: reducing childhood and underage drinking; reducing prescription and over the counter drug abuse/misuse; reducing youth access to tobacco and reducing illicit drug use.
The CMHPSM promotes the use of data to guide local decisions to create comprehensive plans for programming based on the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF). The SPF is an outcome-based, data driven, population-level approach to substance abuse prevention planning and includes five steps; assessment, capacity, planning, implementation and evaluation.
