National Substance Abuse Technical Assistance Organizations: Technical Assistance Guide.
Join Together, Boston, MA.
The technical assistance guide is divided into three categories: United States government, private sector, and civic organizations. The organizations listed in this guide provide technical assistance to help communities across the country reduce substance abuse through prevention, treatment, law enforcement, and economic development strategies. The section on U.S. government resources lists 39 public organizations and agencies that provide technical assistance to help fight substance abuse and other problems. These include the Safe and Drug Free Schools Program of the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education of the U.S. Department of Education. In the private sector, 23 agencies are listed that are not funded by the government. The section on civic organizations lists 13 community organizations that do not have substance abuse as their primary mission, but do support initiatives that often go hand in hand with those of substance abuse prevention groups. Many of these initiatives are educational in nature. A "Request for Services" form is included to assist communities in identifying their needs when asking for technical assistance. (SLD)
