10 Outcome-Based Prevention
Substance- Related Consequence and Use Intervening/ Causal Variables Programs/Policies/ Practices The project is organized around outcomes-based prevention principles This perspective identifies -what you are trying to affect- outcomes What you do to affect it -strategies What the intervening mechanisms are that you might change-intervening variables Implementing the Strategic Prevention Framework Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation and Replanning

11 Logic Model for Reducing Underage Drinking
Substance-Related Consequences Substance Use Causal Factors Strategies (Examples) Educate retailers to check ID and enforce underage sales law Easy Retail Access to Alcohol for youth Low enforcement of alcohol laws Enforce underage alcohol laws (compliance checks, sobriety checkpoints) Alcohol-related crash fatalities Alcohol Poisoning Violence/Crime School Problems Teen Pregnancy Easy Social Access to Alcohol (parties, peers, family) Social Event Monitoring and Enforcement Underage drinking Social Norms accepting and/or encouraging youth drinking (peer, family, community) Media Advocacy to Increase Community Concern about Underage Drinking Restrictions on alcohol advertising in youth markets Promotion of alcohol use (advertising, movies, music) Low or discount pricing of alcohol Bans on alcohol price promotion/happy hours

12 Focus for States and Communities
Consumption and consequences (prevent the problem associated with use) Across the lifespan (not only youth) Decisions based on evidence-based research and empirical data Outcomes measured at the population level (and the program level) If we prevent use, we prevent the problem!!

13 Developing and supporting community capacity to operate a local prevention system will result in the appropriate mix of programs, environmental strategies, and system policies to generate outcomes and to effectively create…. A Life in the Community for Everyone.
