Alcohol, Drug Abuse, and Mental Health Administration (DHHS/PHS), Rockville, MD. Office for Substance Abuse Prevention.
This resource list on preventing alcohol and other drug problems among elementary school children was compiled by the Office for Substance Abuse Prevention (OSAP). The main emphasis is helping educators and parents of children between the ages of 4 and 12 teach the no-use message. Using these resources, teachers, health educators, and community program planners can plan prevention activities for elementary school children. Parents can teach their children the importance of healthy lifestyles and can prepare them for the peer pressure they are likely to encounter as they grow up. Children themselves can band together to support each other's decision to say "no" to alcohol and other drugs. Materials for elementary school children include publications, posters and audiovisual materials. Parent and teacher materials include publications, audiovisual materials, and programs and kits. A list of organizations and programs related to substance abuse is provided. Following the lists is a brief summary of factual information on youth and substance abuse. (LLL)
