Housed within OU Outreach since 1987, SWPC has provided prevention information, training, technical assistance, and resource system development in Oklahoma and surrounding states.
Creating Healthy, Safe Communities Through the Power of Prevention
SWPC follows a public health approach to prevention, using the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) as a guide to plan, implement, and evaluate practices and programs. We rely on the most current prevention science research and literature, along with best practices from the field, to identify prevention needs and offer comprehensive solutions that result in healthy and safe communities.
