Alcohol and Drug Abuse Education Act Amendments Report, Including Cost Estimate of the Congressional Budget Office to Accompany H.R. 10569. 95th Congress, 2nd Session.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House.
This Congressional report contains a recommendation from the Committee on Education and Labor, that the proposed Bill (H.R. 10569) to amend the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Education Act, be accepted. The Bill proposes a five-year extension of the Act with amendments to clarify its purposes and to permit multiple-year funding of alcohol and drug abuse education projects. The Bill suggests that the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Education Act should assist, through grants and contracts, the development of programs which: (1) focus on causes rather than symptoms of drug and alcohol abuse; (2) aim at primary prevention and early intervention in schools; and (3) conduct training for educational and community personnel and law enforcement officials. It also recommends that all of the activities authorized by the Act be carried out at all levels of the community. Inherent in this program is the concept of school-team approach. (EV)
