Step 2: Capacity Building

Communities must have the capacity - that is, the resources and readiness - to support the prevention strategies they choose to address the substance abuse problems they identified in their assessment. Strategies that are well-supported are more likely to succeed. Building capacity means taking a close look at assessment data, finding the gaps that lie therein, and developing a plan to address those gaps.

Key components of capacity building include:

  • Increasing the availability of fiscal, human, organizational, and other resources
  • Raising awareness of substance abuse problems and readiness of stakeholders to address these problems
  • Strengthening existing partnerships and/or identifying new opportunities for collaboration
  • Developing and preparing the prevention workforce
