A topic of critical and social significance - substance abuse in young people and children - is discussed in this volume. The extent of the problem, current theory and research regarding causes and risk factors and alternative intervention approaches are explored.In addition to the more traditional forms of in-patient and out-patient treatments, the authors detail various types of interventions and approaches that have arisen from community, school and media-based efforts. A highlight of this authoritative and scholarly book is material on the evaluation of intervention programmes and on the dissemination of these programmes beyond the confines of research.
