For this project, the Teton County Addictions Task Force (TCATF) will work with Gateway Community Services (a behavioral health service provider from Great Falls) to implement SAMHSA’s Strategic Prevention Framework to reduce youth substance use in Teton County. TCATF is comprised of the Teton County Health Department, Benefis Teton Medical Center, local law enforcement, local schools, the local advisory committee, social services, and community members. Gateway Community Services will provide training and technical assistance to TCATF to complete each step of the strategic prevention framework. Cultural competence and sustainability are guiding principles of the strategic prevention framework and will be a primary focus of the work that takes place through this project.
