ABSTRACT

Tips for Prevention Programming Edition No. 1: Prevention Practices   [open pdf - 30KB]

This document includes a list of nine drug abuse and related crime prevention program elements that have been proven effective by prevention research literature: "peer program and multi-modal approaches; programs emphasizing lite and peer refusal skills; life skills training approach; parenting skills development; strategies to change parental attitudes towards AODs; academic mentoring and tutoring strategies; early prevention interventions; anti-AOD advertising; and tax and increased price policies for alcohol. While there may not be a simple solution for preventing Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) use, there is consensus among professionals in the prevention field that multicomponent programs are likely to produce the most positive effects for the greatest number of participants."
