Regional Prevention Center (RPC)
The Regional Prevention Center (RPC) serves coalitions and KY-ASAP Boards in the 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).
The RPC supports data-driven decision-making and supports the evaluation of programs and practices. Our Zero Tolerance Program serves youth under the age of 21 who have incurred an alcohol violation with intensive prevention education. The Kentucky Moms MATR Program serves pregnant and postpartum females with intensive prevention education to aid in decision-making for a healthy baby.
RiverValley’s RPC works with community partners in our service area to effectively address substance misuse prevention through workshops, presentations, trainings, and other educational opportunities in the community.
Regional Prevention Center Library
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.
