Owtrakul, Vipapan, Ed.; Miller, Andrea B., Ed.; Riccio, Robert J., Ed.
Asian American and Pacific Islander (A&PI) populations are seriously affected by substance abuse related problems. Culturally appropriate prevention resources for A&PI audiences on substance abuse issues remain a critical need. This resource guide provides information and referrals to help prevention specialists, educators, and community leaders locate resources appropriate for use with diverse A&PI communities. The first section contains a list of 13 of prevention materials, which include booklets for adults and classroom materials. The second section includes 20 abstracts of articles, studies, and research reports about A&PI subjects and substance abuse. Some are government publications. The third section lists groups, organizations, and programs on A&PI peoples. The final section lists 15 Internet access sites, some operated by the Federal Government, about A&PI substance abuse issues. (SLD)
