aod prevention programs
AOD Prevention Programs
  • Full Range of Prevention Activities include:
    • Primary Prevention

      • preventing continued problems once they start
aod prevention programs3
AOD Prevention Programs
  • Full Scope of Preventive Goals:
    • Universal Prevention
      • directed at all segments of society
    • Selective Prevention
      • targeted at at-risk populations
    • Indicated Prevention
      • targeted at high-risk individuals
prevention strategies

Behavior and behavior change

Relationship between individuals and their alcohol-related problems

Short-term programs

People remain focused on self

Individual as audience

Professionals make the decisions


Policy and policy change

Social, political and economic context of alcohol-related problems

Long-term policy development

People gain power by acting collectively

Individual as advocate

Professionals help create avenues for citizens to develop and express their voice

Prevention Strategies
the dialogue

“Make a difference in people’s lives one at a time”

Targets at-risk and high-risk individuals to move them into a lower risk category

Secondary and Tertiary Prevention

Problems present in the healthcare setting, and the opportunity for individual intervention should not be missed


Congruent with a Public Health model

Behavior has an “environmental” context that needs addressing

Primary and Secondary Prevention

Problems present in a community setting, and the opportunity for collaborative intervention should not be missed

The Dialogue
environmental management strategy for reducing aod use on college campuses
Environmental Management Strategy for Reducing AOD Use on College Campuses

The Three Spheres of Action




To coordinate the state’s strategic efforts to achieve measurable reductions in the incidence and prevalence of the inappropriate use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs (ATOD) by youth and adults.

The Council shall develop coordinated state prevention plans and provide them to the Governor with recommendations for the continued enhancement and improvement of our state’s prevention system.

1 state incentive grant sig
#1 - State Incentive Grant (SIG)
  • State Incentive Grant (SIG) program in California
  • Federally funded through the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP)
  • $12 million over three years
  • GPAC is to function as the State Advisory Committee to oversee this grant
  • Environmental Prevention Strategy
ca state incentive grant binge drinking prevention
CA State Incentive Grant Binge Drinking Prevention
  • California is one of the last states to receive this funding
  • In other states, SIG grants targeted < 18 y.o.
  • California is first state allowed by the Feds to have the targeted population expand to < 25 y.o.
  • California decided to focus their SIG grant program on the reduction of binge drinking
strategic planning workgroup
Strategic Planning Workgroup
  • Develop a Statewide Plan to reduce binge drinking for California so that the SIG grant RFA design can achieve specific goals
  • Met several times, telephone conferencing, facilitated by ADP and ABC with technical assistance consultants
  • Result: “Strategic Plan to Reduce Adolescent and Young Adult Binge Drinking in California”
community colleges and sig
Community Colleges and SIG
  • There is minimal data on community college students regarding risk factors and binge drinking behavior, relative to the database on CSU and UC students
  • Perception is that community college students are lower-risk due to the following:
    • CCC students are older, work full time, have children, or live with their parents
    • Few CCCs have dorms, Greek life, or large athletics programs
what was shared with the gpac workgroup re cccs
What was shared with the GPAC workgroup re: CCCs
  • Our recent NCHA and Core Survey data (2000-2001) about binge drinking in CCC students
  • Statistics on the numbers of students under 25 y.o. in the CCC system that are full-time and planning on transferring to UC/CSU
  • Other data indicating that perhaps some of the highest risk individuals attend CCCs.
  • Lack of infrastructure, comprehensive data, research and AOD prevention programs does not necessarily translate into less need for these programs for CCC students.

CCC Binge Drinking Data
A Few Tidbits from the 2001 SRJC Survey Break out data of 18-24 year olds that self-reported binge drinking (N=290)
  • The percentage of students planning on transferring that binge drink: 51%
  • The percentage of students living at home with their parents that binge drink: 63.8%
  • The percentage of students that binge drink that have felt suicidal in the past 12 months:


5 goals of the strategic plan
5 goals of the strategic plan
  • Promote a cultural shift in understanding and acceptance of binge drinking so that public acceptance of binge drinking is reduced
  • Encourage and establish collaborations among systems
  • Reduce availability of alcohol to underage youth
  • Increase perception among adolescents and young adults that binge drinking is harmful and unacceptable
  • Identify and promote evidence-based practices in addressing binge drinking
state incentive grant request for proposals
State Incentive GrantRequest for Proposals
  • Due to be released in April, 2004
  • County Prevention Agencies are the preferred lead agencies to submit proposals
  • Focus on environmental strategies with an emphasis on collaborative relationships
  • Collaboration with a higher education institution is a requirement of the proposal
  • $150,000 to $300,000 / year for 3 years
  • Community colleges considered in need of developing capacities

“County AOD offices are eligible to apply, or have first right of refusal if electing not to apply, whereupon an organization (I.e. local government, UC, CSU or community college) with the support of the county can respond to the RFA.”

2 casbirt grant program
#2 -CASBIRT Grant Program
  • California Screening, Brief Intervention, Referral and Treatment Program
  • Federally funded from the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT)
  • $17.4 million ($3.5 million / year for 5 years
  • 4 California Counties will receive grants
  • Individual prevention strategy
casbirt s purpose
CASBIRT’s Purpose
  • Reduce substance abuse by intervening early with nondependent users and referring dependent individuals to community treatment services
  • Based in healthcare settings, through routine screening and providing appropriate interventions.
  • Medical visits are considered “teachable moments”
other ca counties being considered for this grant
Other CA Counties Being Considered for this Grant
  • Kern
  • San Francisco
  • San Mateo
  • Santa Barbara
  • Santa Clara
  • Sutter-Yuba
lessons from higher education
Lessons from Higher Education
  • College health centers are more likely to be already doing this on some level
    • Awareness of alcohol problems in college students that prompt student health centers to routinely screen
    • Smaller health centers – easier to train medical providers (versus urban emergency rooms)
  • National Alcohol Screening Day – April 8th
    • Part of the mental health screening initiative in higher education settings
    • Uses the AUDIT tool for screening, the same used in the CASBIRT system
the california community college system the role of hsaccc and pursuing collaborative possibilities

The California Community College System, The Role of HSACCC, and Pursuing Collaborative Possibilities


The CCC system has been identified as an entity in the State that needs to develop its capacities to reach the 2.7 million students within it


There are community colleges in areas that do not have a CSU or UC college nearbyRural counties looking to collaborate with higher education centers have only community colleges to consider if applying for SIG grants


Skilled technical assistance is being offered, looking for a group of CCC individuals to work with towards developing an infrastructure and to train people on prevention program planning

GOAL for the CCC system:A centralized group of individuals representing the CCC system to act as a steering committee for AOD prevention program development for our community collegesmodeled after the CSU and UC system

    • Use the statewide Student Services Council group as a starting point. Would the SSC group be interested in being involved with this?
    • Identify key programs statewide that could contribute individuals with expertise to the group
    • Identify key stakeholders in AOD prevention at community colleges
    • Identify key groups that can provide leadership and authority for the system
