Greenwell, Gary S.
This information analysis paper reviews the literature on counseling for alcohol, tobacco, and drug abuse, identified by a computer search of the ERIC data base from November 1966 through December 1979. The introduction highlights specific issues and trends in drug abuse prevention. Guidelines for developing drug abuse prevention programs at the elementary, junior high, high school, college and community levels are presented. Staff training programs are described in addition to treatment strategies for tobacco and alcohol abuse. Implications for the helping profession focus on the selection of resources and evaluation models, differences in treatment techniques, and the counselor's role as consultant and advocate. The computer search of educational journals and ERIC documents is also provided with full reference citations. (NRB)
