Handbook for the Prevention and Control of Drug Problems.
Parsippany - Troy Hills Board of Education, Parsippany, NJ.
Guidelines for teachers relative to drug abuse are developed in this handbook offering special steps necessary in attempting to prevent and/or guide students with a drug problem. Stress is placed on helping each student individually understand the forces affecting him, and in helping him form the necessary positive attitudes to cope with each individual cause which may lead him to such behavior. Factors considered are: the drug used, effect of drugs, frequency of use, amount of drugs used, age of initial drug use, length of time used, manner of drug taking, initiator of drug addiction, source of the drug, source of support for drug use, drug orientation of the drug user, visibility of the drug user, and source of classification. To present accurate, objective information to all pupils, subject matter for each grade level, K-12, is listed regarding drugs and drug use, points to consider and content material for that concept, learning activities to understand the concept and content information, and resources-activities and audio visual materials-to supplement the learning. The appendix contains general information about drugs and drug use, sources for obtaining information, and a bibliography of books, films, and pamphlets. (BL)
