MetadataShow full item record
Drug and alcohol abuse has interfered with a positive learning environment in schools. Because drug abuse can prevent learning, this issue has become an educational issue. Public schools have the responsibility to educate students about drug abuse. This paper investigates the four types of prevention programs that have been used in schools and evaluate the effect the programs have had on students. Four types of elementary competence models are evaluated: Skillstreaming; Skills for Growing; I'm Special Program; and Student Assistant Program. The conclusions identify characteristics and aspects that are needed for an effective prevention program.
