  • Key findings

Building on past and current work at the state and local level, SAMHSA's Center for the Application of Prevention Technologies has developed this tool to support prevention practitioners in identifying those factors that protect against substance abuse and misuse among boys and young men of color, as well as mitigate adverse experiences that affect this group, such as racial and ethnic discrimination. By understanding these factors, practitioners will be better positioned to assess, plan for, and select interventions designed to address them.
