Prevention with Purpose:
A Strategic Planning Guide for
Preventing Drug Misuse
Among College Students
Become a “Grandmaster” of AOD Prevention...
By implementing the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF)
A good chess player thinks about what moves her opponent might make during the next turn. A great chess player thinks a few moves ahead and devises a plan. A Grandmaster however, has more than just a strategy for the entire match; she has contingencies in place for when the tide shifts differently than she wanted it to.
A prevention professional needs to think like a Grandmaster.
There is no checkmate in prevention, only forging ahead as new situations present themselves on our campuses. So how do we put in place a process that allows us to respond quickly and efficiently? That is where the SPF comes in.
Why Use the Strategic Prevention Framework?
It is data driven
Good decisions require data.
It encourages a team approach
Requires—and benefits from—participation from diverse community partners.
It is dynamic and iterative
The SPF is a circular, rather than a linear, model.
