The ADAA has submitted to the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) a revision of its statewide
comprehensive Strategic Prevention Framework plan. CSAP approved the plan that includes the
following MSPF priority and indicators:
The MSPF Priority is to reduce the misuse of alcohol by youth and young adults in Maryland, as
measured by the following indicators: reduction of the number of youth, ages 12-20, reporting past
month alcohol use; the reduction of the number of young persons, ages 18-25, reporting past month
binge drinking; and the reduction of the number of alcohol-related crashes involving youth ages 16-25.
The MSPF Evidence Based Practices and Cultural Competency Workgroups will resume meeting starting
January 20, 2010. The Northeast CAPT will conduct trainings for both workgroups to strengthen
knowledge and capacity.
The ADAA Research Division, along with senior management, met with the University of Maryland,
School of Pharmacy, on November 15, 2010 to discuss possible collaboration for data services necessary
to support the data driven decision-making MSPF process and reporting functions.
The ADAA MSPF staff continues to provide technical assistance, workshops and trainings to the
prevention and treatment field.
