Public Health Emergency Preparedness
Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) brings regional partners together to be better prepared to respond to large-scale public health emergencies within our community. The focus is to coordinate with key stakeholders to develop comprehensive community preparedness and response plans to be able to effectively mitigate and respond to the impacts of a large scale public health emergency.
Substance Misuse Prevention (SMP) focuses on education and awareness with our community to understand the prevalence and increase protective factors against Substance Use Disorder. The Substance Use Disorder Continuum of Care (SUDCoC) represents the ideal integrated framework that covers Prevention, Promotion, Intervention, Treatment, and Recovery.
