Statewide initiatives are colleges and universities, community-based organizations, and state government officials working to prevent alcohol and drug misuse among college students. Many states and territories have implemented such an effort to support campus-based prevention programs and address the state’s identified alcohol and drug misuse issues.
NPN is a component group of the National Association of State Alcohol and Drug Abuse Directors, working to ensure effective and evidence-based tobacco, alcohol, and other drug use prevention programs and policies that are comprehensive and culturally competent. It is comprised of state prevention coordinators who are responsible for substance use prevention systems in each state.
