Drug Abuse Prevention: The Awareness, Experience, and Opinions of Junior and Senior High School Students in New York State. Report No. 2 of Winter 1974/75 Survey.
Dembo, Richard; And Others
This report represents an attempt to measure young people's awareness of and attitude toward the prevention efforts their schools have undertaken in terms of the prevalence and incidence of drug use. It also seeks to learn which prevention program topics the students desire. Further, the report addresses the issue of the credibility of various sources of information on drugs and the people who are, in the eyes of youngsters surveyed, the helpers. This information has direct pragmatic value, since it speaks to drug and alcohol use from a perspective that should yield pathways to timely and meaningful intervention. (YRJ)
