This document consists of two catalogues describing programs, events, and activities designed to prevent the use of alcohol and other drugs by American Indian and Alaska Native people, particularly adolescents and other young people. Together the catalogues include 61 descriptions of programs developed and implemented by the five agencies under the auspices of the Regional Centers for Drug-Free Schools and Communities Program. Program strategies include comprehensive, ongoing prevention programs, as well as annual stand-alone events that may be school- or community-based. In addition to drug and alcohol education, many programs incorporate health education, training in coping and communication skills, group and individual therapeutic activities, counseling services, camping or other outdoor activities, recreation, and cultural events and activities. Entries include contact person, target group, special features of the program, program description, and an overview of activities including program evaluation and staff training. (LP)
