Vanguards in Training presents, in summary form, the National Training System's (NTS) Training Grant Program supported throughout the Nation by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to increase the skills, career mobility, and credentials of drug abuse prevention, treatment, and research personnel. The program summaries speak for themselves and give evidence of the time and effort given by program directors and their staffs. The NTS reflects the philosophy of career development found in each of the Branch's programs, and the conviction that training involves not only learning and development of skills but also the acquisition of credentials. Therefore, each training program supported by the Institute is concerned with the full development of the trainee. A resume of the purposes, provisions, and requirements for the Training Grant Program is described in the first section of this document. Summaries of individual projects which have been funded under each type of grant are then presented by state. Projected summaries were drawn from material available to the MTB at the time of initial funding; project outcomes are not included in the summary statements. (Author)
