About this Toolkit

Toolkit Development

The Rural Prevention and Treatment of Substance Use Disorders Toolkit was first published on 5/12/2017 and last reviewed on 11/23/2020.

Toolkits are developed based on a review of FORHP grantees' applications, foundation-funded projects, and an extensive literature review, to identify evidence-based and promising models. Programs featured in the toolkit are interviewed to provide insights about their work and guidance for other rural communities interested in undertaking a similar project.
