School Programs to Prevent Drug Abuse. Issuegram 18.
This Issuegram briefly discusses the role of the school in the prevention and minimization of drug use problems. Two approaches to the problem are considered: the disciplinary approach that concerns the behavior of school personnel confronted with drug activity on school property, and the pedagogical/or educational approach. The roles of the state education agency and the state alcohol and drug authority are also discussed. The Issuegram outlines other strategies for preventing drug abuse that can supplement school programs, including alternative activities, peer counseling, adult influence, and reinforcement of positive behavior. Additional resources and suggested readings are listed. (JAC)
