Prevention & Treatment


AC HIDTA Prevention Initiative consists of training and programming for law enforcement, military, educators, counselors, and Drug Free Communities (DFC). The "Tactical Leadership" training focuses on intra-personal skills, communication, belief Intelligence, SWOT analysis, strategic planning, and leadership skills. In addition, we are piloting specialized training and programing for US Army recruiters and future soldiers. 

AC HIDTA provides evidence-based Social-Emotional (SEL) Prevention programming called GPS for SUCCESS. This “Prevention” is offered to School Resource Officers, Schools, after-school programs, Youth Challenge Academies, and counselors.  The focus of the SEL Prevention programming is to "shift the conversation" from what drugs are and can do but rather to focus on their big vision and life goals. This is reinforced with digital programming for grades 1-12 focusing on the 5 core principles: Vision, Purpose, Mission, Team, and Commitment. (
