RNA 2017

The Regional Needs Assessment (RNA) is a document created by the Prevention Resource Center (PRC) in Region 10 along with Evaluators from PRCs across the State of Texas and supported by Aliviane, Inc. and the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS). The PRC 10 serves 6 counties in the El Paso region.

This assessment was designed to aid PRC’s, DSHS, and community stakeholders in long-term strategic prevention planning based on most current information relative to the unique needs of the diverse communities in the State of Texas. This document will present a summary of statistics relevant to risk and protective factors associated with drug use, as well as consumption patterns and consequences data, at the same time it will offer insight related to gaps in services and data availability challenges.

A team of regional evaluators has procured national, state, regional, and local data through partnerships of collaboration with diverse agencies in sectors such as law enforcement, public health, and education, among others. Secondary qualitative data collection has also been conducted, in the form of surveys, focus groups, and interviews with key informants. The information obtained through these partnerships has been analyzed and synthesized in the form of this Regional Needs Assessment. PRC10 recognizes those collaborators who contributed to the creation of this RNA.
