This resource is adapted by the New England PTTC from a resource created in partnership with the Maine Prevention Workforce Development Workgroup, convened by AdCare Educational Institute of Maine under contract with the Maine Center for Disease Control. It aims to meet universal developmental training needs of the substance misuse prevention workforce in New England. This resource is not specific to any one funding source or program. This resource can be used by new preventionists entering the field working in any federal, state, or locally funded prevention coalition, organization, or initiative.
With this resource, the New England PTTC hopes to provide a strong science-based overview of the field for new professionals to assist them in getting through the orientation phase and into the work they came to do more quickly, and with a shared perspective throughout the region.
