Prevention Specialsits

The powerpoint, Prevention in South Dakota, provides a history of prevention in South Dakota, along with coalitions and programs that are the current focus in prevention services.

The Department of Social Service Prevention Program includes funding for 3 Prevention Resource Centers; the Western PRC in Rapid City, SD, the Northeast PRC in Watertown, SD and the Southeast PRC in Sioux Falls, SD. The Prevention Resource Centers are responsible to provide training and technical assistance to SPF SIG coalitions, youth, teachers and prevention advocates. They assist community groups in developing prevention activities, disseminate information through the prevention libraries and collect and disseminate current prevention research. Each Prevention Resource Center also publishes a monthly newsletter. Click the links below to view their newsletters.
