Through a state incentive grant from the State of Rhode Island department of mental health, retardation and hospitals, the Injury Prevention Center implemented a comprehensive approach consisting of individual, family and environmental strategies to reduce the substance abuse problem in Providence.
In 2006, the Injury Prevention Center collaborated with the city of Providence on a youth developed media campaign promoting substance abuse prevention. Local high school art students created cinema, bus shelter advertisements and billboards featuring their artwork.
The center has also partnered with the Met School to conduct the Leadership and Resiliency Program, another CSAP model program, with all ninth graders at the Met School Peace Street campus.
