APSI is a not-for-profit organization that specializes in promoting prevention science and its application to prevention services in the community. The APSI Team applies its expertise in the conduct of epidemiologic and prevention research, communications, consultation, and training to accomplish this goal. We are best known for the Universal Prevention Curriculum (UPC) Series, which translates the results of 30 years of research on effective prevention interventions and policies into a professional education program for prevention practitioners. The purpose is to increase the capacity of practitioners to undertake evidence-based prevention services and, thus, provide their communities with the most effective prevention programming to address substance use and its consequences.
"Prevention science has identified the most effective strategies for helping children, youth and adults make positive connections and engagement with their families, schools, workplace and community. We are working to bring these evidence-based prevention interventions and policies to communities both in the US and across the world. "
