The making of a drug-free America : programs that work by Mathea Falco( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are few problems as persistent in American life today as drugs. Despite the "solutions" put forth by our country's leaders - seize more ships, impose harsher jail sentences, pursue foreign drug lords - the government's policies have failed to reduce drug abuse and drug crime. Today, as illegal drugs continue to disrupt our schools, our workplaces, and our communities, we face once again this crucial question: Does anything work? It is easy to get discouraged by the magnitude of America's drug habit and by the failures of the multibillion-dollar "war on drugs," but Mathea Falco argues that we need not give in to such despair. One of our nation's leading experts on drug abuse, Falco showcases effective prevention, treatment, and law enforcement strategies from across the country to reveal what really works in the fight against drugs. Success stories include a school program in Kansas City that cuts youngsters' drug use by half; a neighborhood group in Washington, D.C., that is driving drug dealers off the streets; an anti-drug coalition in Miami that is creating new political priorities; and a treatment program in Los Angeles that keeps people off cocaine. For concerned citizens, parents, and government officials alike, The Making of a Drug-Free America offers workable courses of action that are already changing lives and transforming communities

Burma, time for change : report of an independent task force sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations by Council on Foreign Relations( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Recognizing that democracy and the NLD cannot survive in Burma without the help of the United States and the international community, the Council-sponsored Independent Task Force on Burma sounds a clarion call for change. In response to the government's recent crackdown on the democratic opposition, the Task Force urges the United Nations to call for the immediate release of Aung San Suu Kyi and all political prisoners, and to impose sanctions on Burma, including bans both on new in-vestment in Burma and on the importation of goods produced in Burma. The Task Force report also offers specific recommendations for U.S. policy in four areas: humanitarian assistance; promoting democracy, human rights, and the rule of law; narcotics control policy; and refugees, migrants, and internally displaced persons." "Led by Mathea Falco, president of Drug Strategies and former assistant secretary of state for international narcotics matters, this bipartisan Task Force comprises members with a wide range of experience in international business, law, government, media, academia, public health, and human rights advocacy, among other areas. Its recommendations are intended to inform U.S. government action as well as to increase U.S. cooperation with other countries, especially in Asia, to bring about a long overdue political, economic, and social transformation of Burma."--Jacket

Preventing abuse of drugs, alcohol, and tobacco by adolescents by Mathea Falco( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the mid-1960s until 1980, adolescent drug use rose sharply. Although use has declined somewhat since, adolescent cocaine use remains at peak levels, and crack presents a major threat. Treatment for compulsive drug or alcohol use is needed by 5 to 15 percent of the teenagers who experiment with drugs and alcohol. Drug abuse experts now believe that reducing demand for drugs through education and prevention programs is the most promising strategy for combatting drugs. However, past prevention and education efforts have generally proved unsuccessful in reducing substance use. Reaching adolescents who have dropped out of school and are at highest risk for substance abuse is extremely difficult. During the past 6 years, federal drug policy has emphasized supply control. The Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1986 represents an important first step in developing a comprehensive, well-funded national response to the drug problem. However, a cabinet-level office is needed to lead and coordinate agencies and insure the implementation of a comprehensive, coherent national strategy. Citations number 92. (rh)

School-Based Drug Abuse Prevention Strategies: From Research to Policy and Practice by Linda Dusenbury( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This chapter reviews school-based drug abuse prevention curricula. Drawing on the most current research, the chapter identifies key elements of effective prevention curricula, noting that programs should (1) reflect proven prevention theory and research; (2) provide developmentally appropriate information about tobacco, alcohol and drugs; (3) use interactive teaching techniques, which are most effective at promoting skill development; (4) provide adequate coverage and sufficient follow-up; (5) be culturally sensitive; (6) provide teach training and support; (7) realize additional components may enhance program effectiveness; and (8) demonstrate their effects in rigorous evaluation. The chapter presents an analysis of the 46 most widely available drug abuse prevention curricula for relative effectiveness; and includes suggestions of various ways to improve program design and implementation. The chapter concludes with three policy recommendations for Healthy People 2010 designed to make effective prevention an integral part of adolescent education: (1) all drug prevention curricula should be assessed to determine the extent to which each curriculum addresses the key elements of effective prevention; (2) all drug education curricula should be rigorously evaluated using pretest-posttest control group designs with measures of substance use behavior; and (3) drug prevention curricula demonstrated to be effective in research should be aggressively promoted.
