The Prevention Resource Center is a statewide initiative funded by the Texas Department of State Health Services that spans across 11 regions. Each PRC functions as a data collection repository, training liaison in substance abuse prevention, and conducts tobacco compliance check at tobacco merchant retailers. The PRC is charged to facilitate and maximize regional resources in data collection in order to develop an annual Regional Needs Assessment.
The data collection efforts carried by PRC are focused on the state’s prevention priorities of alcohol (underage drinking), marijuana, prescription drugs, tobacco, and other drugs. The Prevention Resource Centers collaborate closely with community stakeholders, substance abuse prevention programs, and other community advocates to identify and coordinate training opportunities for the region.
The Prevention Resource Center 10 is a data collection repository, substance abuse prevention training liaison, and also provides tobacco compliance checks for Region 10. The PRC 10 program spans across Brewster, El Paso, Culberson, Hudspeth, Jeff Davis, and Presidio counties.
