Kansas Partnerships for Success Prescription
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
Oklahoma Partnerships for Success Prescription
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.
