Abstract: The transcript of an interview with Center for Substance Abuse Prevention Karol Kumpfer presents her plans to educate the public about the effectiveness of efforts to prevent alcohol, tobacco, illicit drug problems and to increase awareness of the existence of many different prevention strategies geared to many different target populations. A discussion of juvenile drug courts notes that these programs need to recognize the crucial differences between drug abuse among youth and adults and to ensure that treatment programs are comprehensive, flexible, individualized, coordinated, intensive, and concrete and should work respectfully and collaboratively with families. An evaluation of community-based approaches to reducing youth drinking contrasts this approach with school-based instructional programs and concludes that focusing on community strategies has promise. Further articles summarize the efforts of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention to address juvenile drug abuse, the National Youth Anti-drug Media Campaign, and recent publications and videotapes.
