Prevention Technology Transfer Center
In the fall of 2018, our Center was awarded a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to establish the Northeast & Caribbean Prevention Technology Transfer Center (NeC-PTTC), covering New Jersey , New York, Puerto Rico and the United States Virgin Islands. As part of a new national substance use prevention initiative modeled after SMAHSA’s highly successful Addiction Technology Transfer Centers, the PTTC provides training and technical assistance services based in prevention science and using evidence-based practices to a full continuum of substance abuse prevention field members, including individuals, organizations, public entities and community-based coalitions. The PTTC also works directly with SAMHSA and across the PTTC Network on activities aimed at improving implementation and delivery of effective substance abuse prevention interventions.
The Center for Prevention Science has partnered with health and education research organizations Education Development Center and National Development Research Institutes, as well as RU SSW alumnus Cory M. Morton, PhD., assistant professor of Social Work at the University of New Hampshire, College of Health and Human Services.
