The mission of LifeSkills Regional Prevention Center (RPC) is to provide professional assistance to communities in the Barren River Region (Allen, Barren, Butler, Edmonson, Hart, Logan, Metcalfe, Monroe, Simpson, and Warren) in the planning and implementation of activities aimed at preventing substance abuse.
The staff of the RPC provides technical assistance and consultation to individuals and community groups about the SPF process in order to address substance abuse issues. The SPF is a 5 step process focusing on a public health approach that is data driven and outcome based. In addition to the 5 steps, sustainability to continue outcomes and cultural competence in order to eliminate disparities among the populations are also part of the process to be addressed at each step.
