Alternatives--One Approach to Drug Education.
Dohner, V. Alton
This publication attempts to produce greater understanding of the complex problems of drug abuse and drug dependence. The major emphasis for prevention is through helping children develop to a healthy maturity. Section One discusses various approaches to drug education (scare and fear, matter-of-fact, styles of use and motives, society and continuum use, and alternatives to drug abuse). Section Two discusses motives for using mood-altering drugs (curiosity, imitation, peer pressure, well-being, instant achievement, relaxation, recreation, psychological support, rebellion, insight, etc.) Section Three discusses alternatives to drug abuse (meaningful relaxation, work and vocational skills, personal awareness, social-political involvement, etc.) The final section briefly discusses a program of family living courses as they should be presented to various grade levels in school. Appendices include a list of various drugs and stimulants, and a short glossary of relevant terms. (PFS)
