CAN logo

The Community Action Network follows an evidence-based methodology known as the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) to identify root causes for substance abuse at the community level.

The Community Action Network has evolved since it was established in 2006 under a former SAMHSA SPF-State Incentive Grant. Currently, CAN is organized as a super-regional substance abuse prevention coalition represented by five strategy workgroups and 11 county coalitions in Northeast Oklahoma.

In 2015, CAN received funding through the SAMHSA SPF-Partnerships for Success grant and continues to receive training and technical assistance from Certified Prevention Specialists representing Cherokee Nation. In 2016, CAN received funding through the new SAMHSA and CSAP SPF-Rx grant which enhances the strategies these coalitions are currently implementing under SPF-PFS grant. CAN uses these grants to help shape the public health landscape of Northeast Oklahoma.
