The mission of ADAPT is to advance knowledge, skills, and quality outcomes in the field of substance use prevention while supporting successful integration of evidence-based strategies into communities.
ADAPT’s Approach to training and technical assistance
ADAPT serves as a TRANSLATOR of evidence-based strategies, NAVIGATOR of the literature supporting these strategies and important resources, and CONNECTOR to mentors, peers, and partners.
ADAPT grounds itself in evidence throughout all activities. Our unique formula for translating that evidence for integration into individual HIDTA communities follows:
(Relatability + Digestibility) Support = ↑ Likelihood for Successful Integration
ADAPT strives to make every interaction with clients Relatable in language and experience, Digestible in content, and enhanced through exponential Support as they implement and evaluate new skills and strategies.
