The Regional Prevention Partnership (RPP) is a five-year cooperative agreement with the US Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abase and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Franklin and Grand Isle Counties are one of six new regions to which the Vermont Department of Health has awarded a grant under the RPP. The goals of RPP are to:
- Reduce underage and binge drinking among persons ages 12-20
- Reduce marijuana use among persons ages 12-25
- Reduce prescription drug misuse and abuse among persons ages 12-25
- Increase state, regional, and community capacity to prevent underage and binge drinking, prescription drug misuse, and marijuana use through a targeted regional approach.
