What Are Preventive Measures For Drug And Alcohol Abuse?
Answer: It has been said that “the best prevention is early intervention”, but by this time it is too late, the person has already started. If the progress of alcoholism can be stopped early in its course, then great individual and family disruption can be avoided. National efforts at prevention of alcoholism include education at all levels, increased publicity and the creative use of media sources. Such efforts have already influenced nicotine addiction in older smokers; although the message of nicotine’s harmful effects are just beginning to impact teenage smokers. But alcohol and other drug programs do have clear, positive effects, and prevention activities continue to be applied at local and national levels with different strategies for different target groups. However, as with most things, prevention starts with the individual.
