Partnerships for Success

Partnerships for Success

The Partnerships for Success (PFS) program reduces and prevents underage drinking in the four counties served by Central District Heath using evidence-based practices. PFS also aims to prevent methamphetamine use among all age groups, and strives to better serve veterans and families of veterans within CDH communities. CDH’s Partnerships for Success program is supported by a five-year subgrant from The Idaho Office of Drug Policy and administered through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

Central District Health and the Partnership for Success Project Coordinator work closely with the Region 4 Behavioral Health Board in order to assess need, plan and build capacity within the health district.
Partnerships for Success creates opportunities through the funding of community partners so they may implement evidence-based curriculum, after-school activities and other programs focused on substance use prevention, awareness and training.
