Ashland Community Coll., KY.
This bibliography provides a list of print and nonprint materials available at Ashland Community College (ACC) that deal with drug abuse education and prevention, along with information on other resources. Information on title, vendor, purchase price, and author is available for 10 books; 18 booklets; 2 audiocassette programs; 13 miscellaneous items (e.g., fact sheets and computer software); 61 pamphlets; 15 reports; and 36 videos. In addition, the names and toll-free numbers of 14 national hotlines and 7 local organizations providing services to families or victims of drug abuse are included. Finally, the addresses of the vendors from which items listed in the bibliography are available, and a list of books on drug abuse and prevention available at the ACC library are presented. Introductory material traces ACC's involvement in drug abuse education and prevention, indicating that the college was twice awarded funding to provide information and training related to drug abuse education and prevention. Through presentations conducted throughout the school year, college students, faculty, and staff had the opportunity to learn from Ashland area experts about health, legal, economic, employment, social and family relationship aspects of drug abuse. In addition, project staff established an up-to-date library of drug abuse education and prevention materials. The second grant funded the Drug Information Units Project, which features the use of Peer Educators, college students who are trained and committed to providing a variety of services to students, faculty, staff, and the entire ACC service area.
