Regional Centers Support Communities That Care

The Centers for the Application of Prevention Technologies (CAPTs) support SAMHSA’s Communities That Care (CTC) program by offering a wide array of training and assistance services to communities, tribes, states, and other U.S. jurisdictions.

Under the guidance of SAMHSA’s Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP), the CAPTs form one of the cornerstones of the Agency’s efforts to bring effective substance abuse prevention to every community by moving the knowledge gained from science into the delivery of services.

There are five CAPT regions. These centers serve programs located in central, northeast, southeast, southwest, and western regions of the Nation.

The CAPTs work directly with state-level agencies to provide training and strategic planning services—including training-of-trainers programs and online educational services—so that knowledge can be disseminated to community-level organizations.

Priority clients for all CAPTs are states and jurisdictions with State Incentive Grants (SIGs), including Strategic Prevention Framework SIGs.
