Quality substance abuse training for 279 educational personnel (school counselors, school nurses, and school psychologists) across the state of Alabama was provided in a series of two-day training sessions through a federal grant. Although the original grant proposed 7 training sessions, 9 training sessions were ultimately offered over the course of the project, with class sizes ranging from 9 to 46 participants. Four of the training sessions were held in Birmingham, Alabama. Goals and objectives of the grant are listed, and how each goal was met is described. The goals were to: (1) improve the quality of drug education materials by developing training materials; (2) increase the number of qualified school-based substance abuse professionals; and (3) increase the amount of technical assistance available to school counselors, psychologists, and nurses to aid them in establishing prevention/intervention activities at the local level. Participants' project evaluations were highly positive. Contains three tables.
