Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention focuses on a key problem of our national welfare: the reduction of use and abuse of substances known to endanger health, such as alcohol, illicit drugs, and tobacco. With the number of deaths related to the consumption of alcohol in the US at 100,000 per year, the cost of addictions is predicted to rise to a staggering $150 billion annually. Many strategies for preventing substance abuse are being applied by governmental agencies and healthcare providers to reduce addictions. This selection of concise reviews by leading experts-much of it gleaned from NIH-funded research-highlights specific methodologies and approaches targeted for selected populations, including: promotions and incentives in the workplace • the cost of drugs in the context of economic change • programs for cigarette, alcohol, and hard drug abuse prevention • drug prevention in minority groups • substance abuse problems among religious groups professing abstinence • family treatment of alcoholism • adolescent alcohol treatment • training teachers for substance abuse prevention • prevention of substance abuse in women • programs for girls. Unique in scope and approach, this initial volume of Drug & Alcohol Abuse Reviews provides valuable new insight-to both professional and layperson alike-into this special set of problems confronting today's society.
