Tips for Prevention Programming Edition No. 2: Effective Drug Prevention Strategies [open pdf - 46KB]
According to this document, drug prevention research has made it clear that, at a minimum, the Nation's young people need the following: "Community settings that protect and promote drug-free living; Educational, workplace, and social settings that impart and reinforce accurate drug information and 'no use' attitudes; and Social sanctions and rewards that discourage drug use and other serious risk behaviors. To link specific prevention efforts to specific outcomes, analysts must ask not simply 'What works?' but also 'What specific programs are effective, what approaches do they use, and with which populations will they be effective?'"
