To better understand how prevention services in Austria were affected by the COVID-19 crisis, we asked the nine regional prevention centres about changes in how interventions are implemented in times of COVID-19. Responses were received from all nine centres. While some measures (e.g., courses for professionals) could be transferred online, a direct transfer to a virtual format was not always feasible or desirable. Some prevention centres developed strategies to continue in-person delivery of measures in line with COVID-19 regulations. Other centres used gaps in service provision to revise existing materials or to develop new initiatives. The experiences of the prevention centres highlight the gains as well as limits of digital prevention approaches, whilst also pointing toward other delivery modes, strategies and aims. An unexpected finding was that established structures and processes for addiction prevention may be adapted to serve the need of a “COVID Recovery Society”.
