Our Workforce Vision
The Office of Drug Policy envisions an Idaho free from the devastating social, health, and economic consequences of substance abuse. The work that substance abuse prevention professionals do has the power to positively impact the health and safety of Idahoans. ODP firmly believes that professionalizing and empowering the prevention workforce is key to combatting Idaho's substance abuse issues.
The Certified Prevention Specialist (CPS) is one of the fastest growing credentials in behavioral health and distinguishes substance abuse prevention professionals that have demonstrated competency through experience, education, and supervision. Learn more here.
