Drug Abuse Prevention, Second Edition fills an important niche in the prevention field. Many texts outline the various drugs and stop there; few focus on drug abuse prevention. This text is designed to provide more than just the facts about drugs; its goal is to teach students and practitioners the important concepts and skills needed in designing prevention programs, assessing the merits of prevention materials, interacting with community constituents with a stake in drug abuse prevention, participating in the formation of school and public policy regarding drug abuse, and evaluating the impact of drug abuse prevention programs.
eLearning - The following features are designed to provide students with an interactive learning experience to go along with the text:
• Animated Vocabulary Flashcards - Learning has never been so visually stimulating. The animated flashcards will guide you through the key definitions vital to your understanding of drug abuse prevention.
