Alcohol, Drug Abuse, and Mental Health Administration (DHHS/PHS), Rockville, MD. Office for Substance Abuse Prevention.
This report, prepared by the Office for Substance Abuse Prevention (OSAP) provides information for starting a student assistance program as one approach for intervening and preventing alcohol and other drug problems among school-age youth. The purpose and function of student assistance programs are described, including the benefits they offer both students and schools for a wide range of problems. A section describing a program model outlines the components found in virtually every school with this type of program. Three examples are presented of school districts that have successfully adopted a student assistance program. The models differ in the services offered and the way the services are delivered, but each provides students with previously unavailable resources and help. An annotated resource list on student assistance programs citing books and booklets, periodicals, and articles is provided, and organizations that assist with planning these programs are also listed.
