Adult Prevention / Education

Regional Prevention Center (RPC)

The Regional Prevention Center (RPC) serves coalitions and Kentucky Agency for Substance Abuse Policy (KY-ASAP) Boards in RiverValley Behavioral Health’s seven-county region to effectively address substance misuse prevention. We utilize the strategies of the Center For Substance Abuse Prevention and the Seven Strategies for Community Change from Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA).

RPC Programs

The KY-Moms MATR Program helps expectant mothers across the Commonwealth who are at risk for using alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs, to reduce harm to their children from their substance use, during and after pregnancy.

We provide pregnant and postpartum females with intensive prevention education to aid in decision-making for a healthy baby. This helps ensure more babies and children across the state are getting a healthier start to life and the support they need to grow into future leaders – because healthy communities start with Mom!

Our Zero Tolerance Program serves youth under the age of twenty-one (21) years of age who have incurred an alcohol violation with intensive prevention education.

Participants are referred by the court system and are screened to ensure they meet program criteria.

The Regional Prevention Center Library is located at our Cigar Factory Complex location. Books, journals, and DVDs are available for loan. There are also reference materials available for on-site public use. The Library also offers brochures and information from national databases to obtain the most current information regarding substance abuse topics in the region, state, and nation.
