National Clearinghouse for Drug Abuse Information Report Series, Series 22, No. 1. Community Action Programs.
National Inst. on Drug Abuse (DHEW/PHS), Rockville, MD. National Clearinghouse for Drug Abuse Information.
Based on the principle that drug abuse is no longer a problem restricted to certain economic, social, educational, or intellectual levels or ethnic groups, this pamphlet relates some examples of on-going community action programs and projects. Essentially, these programs are striving to solve some of the drug related problems in their immediate community, with their activities directed toward prevention, treatment and rehabilitation, law enforcement, and the alleviation of social conditions which spawn drug abuse. Others offer services including referral, counseling, education and information, training, and aid in rehabilitation. Ideas for the types of projects which can be undertaken in several major problem areas are suggested. To exemplify these ideas brief resumes of the goals and accomplishments of selected community organizations and centers interested in drug abuse control are compiled. Also listed are agencies with possible funding sources, a bibliography of books, magazine articles and pamphlets, and audio-visual aids--films, filmstrips, simulation games, and plays. (BL)
