Regional Needs Assessment
The Regional Needs Assessment (RNA) report is created by each Prevention Resource Center in the state of Texas every year. Data compiled to produce this report is gathered to provide the state, agencies and organizations, and the community at-large with a comprehensive view of information about the trends, outcomes, and consequences associated with alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use in the region. The methodology for this report was designed to enable PRCs and community stakeholders to engage in long-term strategic prevention planning based on current and prospective services relative to the needs of the communities in the state. The information compiled in the RNA will be utilized to build a Regional Data Repository, which is utilized as a regional asset throughout the state.
