Teamwork for Healthy Campuses. NYS College Alcohol and Other Drug Programs.
Harding, Frances M.
This manual offers information on developing, implementing, and maintaining college alcohol and other drug programs at New York institutions of higher education. The document notes that alcohol is the drug of choice for college students and that therefore alcohol-related issues and programs are the primary focus of the manual. Part 1 of the manual offers new information on national statistics, women and alcohol, culturally diverse students and alcohol, and alcohol marketing. It also deals with the causes and prevention of alcohol problems, the public health model approach to prevention, and the limitations of the "responsible drinking" philosophy. Part 2 discusses the various components of model campus alcohol and other drug prevention programs including details on campus task forces, needs assessment, campus policy issues, prevention strategies, early intervention and discipline, publicity, and evaluation. The manual also includes appendixes on prevention program funding, Employee Assistance programs, a needs assessment instrument, a student alcohol and drug knowledge test, confrontation guidelines, a documentation form, federal editorial guidelines, selected alcohol facts, and New York State alcohol-related laws. (Contains 78 references.) (JB)
