2021 Award Information

Substance abuse prevention is one of the greatest public health challenges of our time, and its success depends on a workforce of qualified professionals trained in evidence-based practices.
Prevention professionals are working all over the world – partnering with parents, community groups, coalitions, faith-based organizations, health care professionals, law enforcement, businesses, and educators – to make a difference in their communities. 
Among them are the professionals who go above and beyond, truly standing out in their dedication, compassion, and effectiveness. It is those professionals whom IC&RC wants to recognize.
