Guide to Alcohol Programs for Youth.
Maloney, Susan K.
This program guide was prepared by the National Clearinghouse for Alcohol Information of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. Its purpose is to assist program planners in the development of strategies to minimize the abuse of alcoholic beverages by youths. It provides information and direction to: (1) youth-serving organizations wanting to add an alcohol education component to ongoing programs; (2) educational institutions wanting to examine alcohol use among their students and develop strategies to minimize its abuse; and (3) any community group interested in directing their resources to reducing alcohol abuse by young people. It might also be of value to alcohol program planners and community or private foundations. The booklet is designed to be adapted to the needs of the individual community. Topics covered include trends in drinking behavior, strategies for change, implementation considerations, and program development. The guide also includes a list of programs and contact addresses.
