Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant (SPF SIG)
What is the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF)?
The SPF is a SAMHSA-wide planning model for prevention that is relevant for substance abuse, mental health promotion, and other prevention areas. It incorporates the collection and use of data at all steps and requires that throughout the process, cultural competency and sustainability of efforts are addressed. It consists of five basic steps:
As can been seen in Figure 1 to the right, these steps are part of a circular process. Beginning with the assessment, States must first conduct a state-wide needs assessment of indicators and outcomes of substance use including alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs (ATOD). Next the building of capacity at the state level is required, then the development of a strategic plan to address the priorities, the implementation of the plan, and finally the evaluation. As with most processes, however, some of these steps may occur simultaneously with other steps. For example, capacity building may occur while the needs assessment is also occurring or the planning is occurring. Data are used throughout to drive both the focus of prevention efforts and the types of prevention effort. Both the process and the outcome are important and data are to be used to direct, modify, and assess efforts through out the process.
