Families, schools, community organizations, and local practitioners have an important role to play in bringing about changes in the larger physical and psychosocial environment. The environmental strategies of policy, enforcement, education, communication, and collaboration can all have a significant impact. These environmental strategies for prevention of substance abuse can also contribute to violence prevention. This paper provides resources to help communities undertake the necessary measures to reduce substance abuse. Alcohol advertising and alcohol policy play an important role in environmental strategies and resources related to this topic are also included. (JDM)
