Managing Your OSAP Contract

The Office of Substance Abuse Prevention (OSAP) receives money to fund communities from both federal and state governments. Both of these funding sources have requirements that OSAP must adhere to in order to stay in compliance and maintain funding for the entire state of New Mexico. These requirements trickle down to each OSAP provider into contracts and Scopes of Work (SOW). With decreases in funding availability, it is crucial to manage your OSAP contract and ensure your SOW is fully being met. This training will assist in successfully managing an OSAP contract using proven Project Management tools and techniques. Participants will review tips and practices for: the management plan; budgeting; how to work with OSAP when a strategy isn’t working and suggesting a change in SOW; and developing an archiving process for the repository of project’s institutional documents. Note: This training is open only to OSAP providers.

Why Everyone Doesn’t Have an Equal Opportunity for Health & Strategies for Equity

A core component of effective substance use prevention is cultural competence. Cultural competence includes awareness of health disparities and making meaningful efforts to create health equity in our community. Health Equity means that everyone has an equal opportunity for health. This workshop will explore the root causes of health inequalities. Using reflective writing, storytelling, and games we will explore environmental, social, and institutional contexts for health, focusing on mental health and substance use. We will cover the strategies for individual and structural approaches for change and practice de-stigmatizing language for more accurate and effective substance use prevention.

Community Readiness: The Key to Community Change

The Training System is honored to provide this amazing training opportunity! The original developers of the Community Readiness Model (CRM), Barbara Plested, Ph.D., and Pamela Jumper Thurman, Ph.D will provide instruction on what the model is and how to use it in communities. Community readiness is a nine stage multi-dimensional model to facilitate community change and engage community investment. The model was developed 26 years ago (at Colorado State University) in Native communities and has been found to be universally effective at addressing many social issues. This model is community-specific, issue specific and was designed to build cooperation among systems and individuals while incorporating the culture of the community. In a cost effective and resource effective manner, it helps mobilize communities to develop intervention strategies for prevention. Community Readiness is theoretically based and is a respectful, step by step, approach to creating positive and healthy community change. When applied to prevention, or other social issues, community readiness determines and guides the timing for each step of effort aimed at changing community norms, behaviors and attitudes.

Marijuana: What Preventionists Need to Know

For over 20 years our state’s youth marijuana use has been significantly higher than the United States rate (2021 NM Substance Use Epidemiology Profile). In 2021 New Mexico legalized the recreational use of marijuana for people 21 and over. It is important for preventionists to be familiar with this drug as we consider the impacts increased availability may have and implement prevention strategies for it in our communities. This training will provide a general overview of the cannabis plant and how its chemical components get people high and the difference between hemp and marijuana. How marijuana effects the entire body, consequences for short- and long-term use, and evidence-based and best practice prevention strategies will also be reviewed. A brief summary of the new laws will also be provided for reference.
