Drug Abuse Prevention For Your Community.
Besteman, Karst G.
Drug abuse is not confined to the young, but if a young person between the ages of 8 and 20 can be prevented from abusing drugs, chances are that he/she will never have a serious drug problem. Drug abuse prevention means helping young people develop personal strengths and values to reduce the chance that they will hurt themselves or others by misusing drugs or other chemical substances. This pamplet can be useful for parents, teachers, students, administrators, guidance personnel and community members. Topics focus on why people abuse drugs and how to develop community drug abuse prevention programs. Facts are provided in a straightforeward manner about social drugs, stimulants, depressants, sedatives, narcotics, hallucinogens and inhalents. Resource information is given for nationwide drug abuse prevention programs, with addresses and services available; also provided are names and addresses of the 50 single state drug abuse prevention agencies.
