Drug Abuse Prevention Programs: Do They Work?
Pruitt, B. E.
NASSP Bulletin, v77 n552 p37-49 Apr 1993
Most school-based drug abuse prevention programs comprise five categories, stressing knowledge change, attitude change, knowledge and attitude change, peer relationships, or drug use alternatives. Peer programs seem most effective. Programs often fail because of unrealistic expectations, wasted energy, program weakness, lack of creativity, failure to identify high-risk groups, and inadequate research and evaluation techniques.
