Need for Methamphetamine Programming in Extension Education
Beaudreault, Amy R.; Miller, Larry E.
Journal of Extension, v49 n3 Article 3RIB6 Jun 2011
The study reported sought to identify the prevention education needs involving methamphetamine through survey methodology. The study focused on a random sample of U.S. states and the Extension Directors within each state, resulting in a 70% response rate (n = 134). Findings revealed that 11% reported they had received methamphetamine user prevention training and 23% had received safety training. Overall, perceived knowledge is low regarding methamphetamine production signs, use, state and federal laws, prevention resources, and identification of methamphetamine education resources. Yet perceived importance of the same topics is high, supporting the need for increased methamphetamine programming. (Contains 2 tables.)
