  Disease Prevention+ 

Center for Substance Abuse Prevention

The Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) proposes to award a

three year cost-reimbursement, level-of-effort type contract to

establish a National Center for the Advancement of Prevention, which

will assist CSAP in achieving its mission by developing and providing

knowledge synthesis and transfer mechanisms, providing proactive

technical assistance to States and through the States to the field, and

by developing and providing state-of-the-art evaluation methodologies

and tools.  The Center is expected to be composed of a core, which

would handle coordination and administrative responsibilities, and

three components, one for each of the areas previously stated.  The

Center will require a group of highly skilled experts in the areas of

substance abuse prevention services, evaluation and research,

cost/benefit analysis, needs assessment, instrument development,

statistics, computer programming, database and communications systems,

other social sciences and training.  These experts will support CSAP's

mission by providing state-of-the-art knowledge to enhance the

effectiveness of substance abuse prevention programs in the State and

in communities.  Additionally, three options are proposed within the

contract.  Option I concerns expanding and elaborating effective

prevention strategy models, guidelines, and protocols.  Option II

concerns the development of a prototype for a possible regional system

for dissemination, technical assistance, and training and Option III

concerns performing developmental work for the future national

prevention database and potential community based surveillance systems

to monitor alcohol and other drug abuse incidence, prevalence, and

related sequelae.  It is estimated that 36 months will be required for

this project.   However, two separate one-year extension options are

also included.
