Kansas Partnerships for Success Prescription Drug Project

On a statewide level, DCCCA collaborates with key stakeholders to increase awareness of prescription drug abuse and misuse. We work with KDADS and other partners to design appropriate strategies including a public information campaign on encouraging safe storage and proper disposal of prescription medication to decrease youth access, identifying prescription drug drop box locations and promoting prescription drug take back events.

At the community level, DCCCA actively engages communities to prevent and reduce the incidence and prevalence of prescription drug abuse and misuse among individuals ages 12-24 in high-risk, high need areas of the state. We utilize the Strategic Prevention Framework to support communities as they design a strategic plan to actively address prescription drug misuse and abuse in their communities. We assist coalitions to identify evidence-based practices suited to their individual priorities and plan for sustainability for each of these chosen practices, either through local sources or through outside support.

Oklahoma Partnerships for Success Prescription Drug Project
DCCCA works with coalitions in Oklahoma City to address the non-medical use of prescription drugs among youth ages 12-25.  We utilize the Strategic Prevention Framework to guide the coalition through assessment of data sources, build coalition capacity to address non-medical use of prescription drugs and design a data-driven strategic plan with evidence-based strategies to make a difference in our community.  We provide community education and strategies to raise awareness about the dangers associated with the misuse of prescription drugs.  This project is funded by SAMHSA, CSAP and ODMHDAS.  For additional information about this project, contact Karin Leimbach at or (405) 708-7927.
