Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Programs: A Resource and Planning Guide.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
This resource and planning guide on comprehensive alcohol and drug abuse programs was developed by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. Section 1 of the guide presents an overview of alcohol and other drug abuse (AODA), discussing the problem and the solution. Section 2 describes how to implement programs from the initial planning stages to a final, though ongoing, evaluation phase. This is followed by section 3 on strategies of integration within programs, within the school, and with the local community. Section 4 offers a brief synopsis of the AODA program, and section 5 presents full descriptions of the student programs, including the Student Assistance Program, peer programs, and special clubs and activities. Section 6 outlines collateral programs for adults, including the Employee Assistance Program, employee wellness programs, and parent programs. At the end of each program description, special issues concerning implementation and operation are discussed. The next section looks at special populations. These include students with specific sets of circumstances that necessitate a more direct, more intense treatment or adaptation of program services. Such populations arise from individual issues, such as eating disorders and exceptional education needs, and societal issues, such as gender roles and cultural difference. Appended are sample sheets, forms, checklists, and resources that staff members can use when developing and running programs; a discussion of legal issues related to operating AODA programs; and a glossary of AODA terms.
