Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Education: Survey of the States.
A survey of the states' efforts to initiate alcohol and drug abuse prevention education programs in local school districts found that: (1) almost without exception, alcohol and drug abuse prevention education is part of the health education curriculum; (2) more than half of the states require local school districts to offer comprehensive K-12 substance abuse prevention programs, with choice of curriculum, implementation, and program design left to local school districts; (3) most states do not require preservice or inservice training for school personnel in substance abuse prevention education; (4) almost all states have designated one or more department of education staff members for administering state-level substance abuse prevention policies and services; and (5) many states have established councils comprised of representatives from state agencies, business, and the community that deal with substance abuse prevention education. Survey results are presented in narrative and tabular format, and the National Association of State Boards of Education recommendations to State Boards of Education are included. (JD)
