One Choice Prevention: A Message of Hope and Science

One Choice Prevention: A Message of Hope and Science

Description

This webinar from the Northwest and Southwest Prevention Technology Tranfer Centers (PTTCs) presents the One Choice Toolkit, a free resource for prevention leaders working with youth of all ages.
One Choice is not a program but a framework. Analogous to other standards that promote teen health, the standard for substance use is One Choice: no use of any alcohol, nicotine, marijuana, or other drugs by youth under age 21 for reasons of health. 
Data show that for American youth, all substance use is closely related – and that the percentage of young people making the decision not to use any substances has been increasing for nearly four decades. The One Choice Toolkit offers data, graphics, and ideas and activities to help communities create social norms campaigns, amplifying the voices of youth who are making One Choice to be drug-free.

Objectives

By the end of the webinar, participants will:

  • Articulate the One Choice prevention message and the brain science and national substance use trends behind it
  • Identify ways the One Choice message can be successfully integrated into youth-led prevention activities and prevention education materials
  • Access the One Choice Toolkit and brainstorm new resources that could enhance the integration of the One Choice message among prevention groups

Audience

Community, tribal, jurisdiction, and state-level substance misuse prevention practitioners and allied health partners located in the Pacific Southwest and Northwest regions, including Alaska, American Samoa, Arizona, California, Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Guam, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Republic of Marshall Islands, Republic of Palau, and Washington. 

Continuing Education

Participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance for 1.0 hour for participating in the live event.

Pathways to Recovery from Addiction in Mutual Help Groups (webinar)

The goal of the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) Clinical Trials Network/Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) webinar series is to help scholars and clinicians in the addiction field stay abreast of cutting edge science. 

In this webinar, Keith Humphreys, PhD (Stanford University) will explore the landscape of mutual help groups and the diverse mutual help groups that are available to patients. The clinical and cost effectiveness of group and 12-step programs will also be reviewed. Lastly, the clinical and policy implications of mutual help groups for promoting recovery from addiction will be discussed. 

After this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Identify at least two essential and two optional features of addiction-focused mutual help groups.
  • Recall at least two research studies that examined the effectiveness and health care cost-offset of 12-step mutual help groups.
  • Specify at least two clinical and two policy strategies for increased rates of recovery in mutual help groups.

This webinar is sponsored by the Northwest ATTC, Pacific Southwest ATTC, and the Western States Node of the NIDA Clinical Trials Network.
