SAFE Project’s Bridging Prevention & Recovery (BPR) Program

The Bridging Prevention and Recovery (BPR) Program helps communities understand, develop, and apply approaches using hands-on tools to unite towards common community goals that prevent substance misuse and promote recovery. 

It guides communities in developing a clear and supported path for youth prevention and recovery friendly supports by providing a road map to promote wellness and resiliency and assists communities with recovering from the crushing impacts of substance use disorder.
