The extent of the problem of substance abuse in young people and children, and current theory and research regarding causes and risk factors are discussed in this authoritative volume. Alternative intervention approaches are also explored - the authors detail various types of interventions and approaches that have arisen from community, school and media-based efforts.
A highlight of the book is material on the evaluation of intervention programmes and on the dissemination of these programmes beyond the confines of research.
