Facing Addiction has produced this Community Convening Guide to provide organizing tools and amplification support for community forums held on this critical issue across the country in 2019 and beyond. The local forums will focus on the importance and urgency of implementing and scaling the use of evidence-based prevention, screening, and early intervention practices in local communities. You can download the guide by clicking on the image to the right.
The guide will:
- Demonstrate the necessity and efficacy of evidence-based prevention practices
- Provide an outline for organizing a forum in your community to promote effective youth prevention programs
- Underscore the necessity of SBIRT programming, citing both the latest research as well as examples of successful program implementation
This guide may be used by any community organization that wants to raise awareness of, and work toward implementing, these practices to address substance use issues and prevent addiction.
