Description

This volume is intended to fill a current gap in substance abuse prevention theory and practice. It strongly recommends outcome-based and systems change approaches: Human Service agencies must not only focus on the individuals affected by substance abuse, but the entire system, including pre-service training in human services, the environment and public policy.
