About the PRC
There are Prevention Resource Centers in each of the 11 Health and Human Service (HHS) Regions in Texas. PRCs serve as a central data collection repository and are the substance abuse prevention training liaison for each region.
The Prevention Resource Center in Region 9 is a program of The Permian Basin Regional Council on Alcohol & Drug Abuse and is funded by the Texas Department of State Health Services.
Region 9 PRC serves as the data repository for West Texas and, as such, collects and disseminates substance abuse data year-round throughout Region 9. The PRC also provides substance abuse trainings all year and performs tobacco compliance checks throughout the region.
