What are
Regional      Prevention Coalitions?

Coalitions work with community stakeholders to identify and create positive environmental changes that impact behavioral health and substance misuse issues in their specific region.

With its statewide vantage point, the New Jersey Prevention Network connects and supports regional coalitions and actively participates in all levels of NJ prevention.

Coalitions promote evidence-based prevention strategies such as education, public awareness, policy development, and enforcement, with a primary focus on building community resilience.


Coalitions also provide training, technical assistance, and resources to individuals and organizations working in substance misuse prevention across NJ.

Guided by national research, NJPN provides technical assistance and facilitates trainings for coalitions as they identify and create positive environmental changes.


With NJPN’s guidance, each regional coalition assesses local data and utilizes the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) process to prioritize needs and develop a comprehensive strategic prevention plan.

Building Capacity for Effective Prevention in New Jersey

"Members of each regional coalition bring to the table a diverse set of skills and resources aimed at reaching similar goals across the state. NJPN is committed to advancing their efforts by strengthening each regional coalition through training sessions, collaboration, and technical assistance." 

  - Diane Litterer, CEO and Executive Director, NJPN
