Report on the Development of the National Drug Education Program Information Support System as of December 1, 1972 [and] Final Report, September 1973.
Rochester Univ., NY.
This two-part report summarizes the comprehensive Report on the Development of the National Drug Education Program (NDEP) Information Support System. The first report describes the implementation and growth of the system, discusses the design approach, and provides sample information collection instruments. Part II is, itself, in two sections: (1) a summary of the development of an information support process for the Regional Training Center component of the U.S. Office of Education program; and (2) a description and sample of all of the current reports generated from the data in the system, with a discussion of their relationship to the problem solving strategies of the NDEP. The program presents mechanisms to bring about the conditions deemed necessary to reduce the level of drug abuse. These conditions are: (1) open communication between both youth and parents and teachers; (2) an availability of meaningful alternatives to the use of drugs; (3) a feeling of self-worth and control of one's own life; (4) a willingness on the part of adults to accept the validity of alternative life styles; and (5) an improved perception of what the consequences of drug abuse are.
