Community Health & Performance Management
Substance Abuse Prevention

The Nebraska Substance Abuse Prevention Program within the Division of Public Health, Community Health & Performance Management, managed the Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant (SPF SIG) Program during 2008 - 2012. 

This program was funded through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The aim was to enhance and sustain substance abuse prevention at the State, regional, and community levels by supporting data-driven and evidence-based prevention initiatives. In August of 2008, 16 community coalitions in Nebraska were selected to address up to three of the following prevention priorities:

  • prevent alcohol use among persons 17 and younger,
  • reduce binge drinking among 18-25 year olds, and
  • reduce alcohol impaired driving across all age groups 

Nebraska Young Adult Alcohol Opinion Survey

The Nebraska Young Adult Alcohol Opinion Survey was a mail survey administered to 19-25 year olds in Nebraska between December 2009 and March 2010. The survey addressed alcohol-related behaviors including alcohol use and alcohol impaired driving, and also addressed attitudes and perceptions related to alcohol use. Results from this survey are important for the planning and evaluation of state and local prevention efforts targeted at reducing underage drinking, binge drinking, and alcohol impaired driving in Nebraska. Below are links for further information about the survey and survey results.
