African Americans. Substance Abuse Resource Guide.
Miller, Andrea B., Ed.
While studies show that young African Americans tend to use alcohol and drugs at lower rates than their White and Hispanic peers, substance abuse and involvement continue to touch the lives of millions of African American youth. This Substance Abuse Resource Guide for prevention specialists, educators, parents, and others was compiled from a variety of publications and represents the most current information to date. It is not an all-inclusive listing of materials on this topic. The first section lists 11 prevention materials, which include fact sheets, booklets and brochures, and classroom materials. The second section presents 28 abstracts of studies, articles, and reports related to young African Americans and substance abuse. The third section lists 24 groups, organizations, and programs that provide information and services for young African Americans, and the final section lists 20 Internet access sites, some of which are federal, that provide information about African Americans and substance abuse.
