The Colorado Prevention Partnership for Success (CPPS) is a five-year collaborative initiative funded by the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA) Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) and administered by the Colorado Department of Human Services, Office of Behavioral Health to demonstrate a positive statewide change among high school youth with regards to underage drinking and binge drinking rates.
To address the problem, the CPPS initiative is implementing evidence-based substance abuse prevention practices, policies and approaches that build local and state prevention infrastructure in Colorado. In addition, the initiative integrates the Strategic Prevention Framework within Colorado’s State Prevention system to ensure measureable and sustainable substance abuse prevention outcomes.
This initiative is designed to reduce statewide binge drinking rates by addressing gaps in current prevention services and increasing the ability to reach out to specific populations or geographic areas with serious, emerging underage substance use problems. The Speak Now campaign is one of the programs being used to address underage drinking statewide.
