Expanding Substance Use Prevention and Early Intervention in Schools: A Toolkit

Posted by on December 10th, 2019 Posted in: Children and Teens, Substance Addiction and Misuse
Tags: , , , , ,


The “Expanding Substance Use Prevention and Early Intervention in Schools” toolkit provides information and resources to mobilize communities to expand school-based services for substance use prevention and early intervention. Two resources focus on leveraging the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), including a step-by-step guide on how to build a successful campaign to do so. Other resources describe a key set of tools for early intervention called Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT); provide strategies to implement and fund this intervention in schools and clinics; and offer evidence and talking points for why this is important to help young people live healthier lives.
