The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse (NCADA) and Community Partnership of the Ozarks (CPO) are Prevention Resource Centers (PRCs) in two of the highest-need regions of Missouri. These PRCs will implement GenerationRx, a program focused on medication safety, declining invitations to use drugs, provision of drug-free activities, and adaptive coping skills. Both NCADA and CPO will target the teen demographic given the high rates of opioid analgesic misuse in this age group.  The program has been promoted by SAMHSA for prevention and early intervention.
