Develop your own prevention program

Develop your own prevention program for substance abuseInclude in the design your:

• Target audience

• How your program will reach your target audience (e.g. where it will be held)

• What information will be presented/discussed in your program

• The format in which that information will be presented

• Specific strategies you might use to reduce the likelihood that an individual might engage in substance abuse in the future

Please be sure to defend or justify each of these elements. For example, explain why you believe your prevention program will be the most effective if it is geared toward your chosen target audience.

• Based on your impressions of the reading and notes, what is the one key factor that will help facilitate lower levels of substance dependence in substance abuse treatment? Briefly explain why you highlighted the factor you chose, and discuss how your program helps to cultivate or strengthen that factor in your participants.
