The Prevention Resource Center Region 10 (PRC 10) 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 checks 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 10 are focused on the state’s prevention priorities of underage alcohol use, marijuana and other cannabinoids, prescription drug misuse, tobacco and nicotine products. The Prevention Resource Centers collaborate closely with community stakeholders, substance use and misuse prevention programs, and other community advocates to identify and coordinate training opportunities for the region.
The PRC 10 is a data collection repository, substance use and misuse prevention training liaison, and also provides tobacco compliance checks for Region 10. Region 10 includes across Brewster, El Paso, Culberson, Hudspeth, Jeff Davis, and Presidio counties.
