As part of the summit, Dr. Hill gave a talk describing how to prepare communities for upstream prevention, and how evidence-based preventive interventions listed on the Blueprint registry can be embedded within a larger strategy for preventing substance use disorders, including opioid use disorders, later in life. Dr. Hill’s session was attended by 788 caregivers, educators, healthcare professionals, public safety professionals, prevention professionals, and other community members – 86% of whom reported that they were likely to integrate what they learned in Dr. Hill’s talk.
The summit was organized by A Division for Advancing Prevention and Treatment (ADAPT), whose mission is to advance knowledge, skills, and quality outcomes in the field of substance use prevention while supporting successful integration of evidence-based strategies into communities.
The talk was followed by a Q&A session with Blueprints PI Dr. Pamela Buckley. Click here to watch the full presentation.
