Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing.; Michigan State Dept. of Public Health, Lansing.
The Substance Abuse Prevention Education (SAPE) program aims at: (1) having a direct impact on young people to prevent substance abuse; (2) working with school teachers, parents, and other citizens to develop specific skills that will facilitate substance abuse prevention; and (3) providing program participants with better understanding of the nature of substance abuse, its causes and its prevention. The SAPE program engaged in the following activities during 1974-75: (1) the introduction of basic substance abuse educational ideas to participant groups; (2) provision of information and consultation to interested schools and citizens; (3) specific training programs geared to school staffs to improve in-school curricula and teaching formats, relative to substance abuse prevention; (4) the setting up of student service centers; (5) the training of a cadre of paraprofessional citizen-trainers; (6) involvement of the entire family in substance abuse prevention; and (7) working with schools and school districts on policies and procedures which facilitate a school climate conducive to substance abuse prevention. The seven program activities received emphasis in the order mentioned as far as percent of staff-time was concerned. Most participants expressed satisfaction and said they felt the program helped them considerably. (Author)
