Excellence in Prevention Strategies List

This is a searchable database of prevention strategies. Strategies described in this list come from three primary resources, the National Registry of Effective Prevention Programs (NREPP), a separate list of programs identified as evidence-based by the State of Oregon, and “Scientific Evidence for Developing a Logic Model on Underage Drinking: A Reference Guide for Community Environmental Prevention.”

Planning Frameworks

Let’s do something!  Most researchers agree that community-based prevention works best when community organizers follow an established planning framework. The framework provides structure for the work and a report card about how much progress has been made. Highlighted in the section are the Communities That Care (CTC) and Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) planning frameworks.
