Communities: What You Can Do about Drug and Alcohol Abuse.
Gardner, Stephen E.
This booklet identifies four critical areas for alcohol and drug abuse prevention strategies: communities, parents and families, schools, and the workplace. Under each area, specific ideas for action and pertinent resource materials are described. The community strategies described include youth organizations, policies and laws, counseling, the Channel One process, health promotion, and use of the media and networking. Parent support and action groups, family life skills development, and parent education programs are highlighted under family strategies. For school strategies, policies, peer programs, information programs, health curricula, and student assistance and alternative programs, are suggested. The workplace strategies which are discussed include policies, assistance programs, family programs, health promotion, and information and education programs. The booklet concludes with a list of resource organizations. (BL)
