Extractions: Drug Courts Drug courts are designed to help addicted individuals facing criminal charges get through treatment. Their basic premise is to leverage the authority of the criminal-justice system to keep defendants in treatment, recognizing that the recovery process may well include lapses and relapses, but the longer an addict stays in treatment, the greater chance he/she has for sustained recovery.

Extractions: Source: ERIC Clearinghouse on Educational Management Eugene OR. Substance Abuse Policy. ERIC Digest, Number 80. Substance abuse affects American children of all economic backgrounds in every geographic area. Research has linked drug use to a decline in academic performance, to truancy and dropping out, and to crime and misconduct. All too often, illegal substances are used and distributed on school property. Students whose schools lack clear alcohol and drug policies are more likely to use or experiment with chemical substances. While good policy alone can't reduce substance abuse, it is the indispensable foundation for an effective effort against substance abuse. WHY IS SUBSTANCE-ABUSE POLICY IMPORTANT? Substance-abuse policy makes a public statement that educators are aware of and concerned about the problem. Policy can express the intent and beliefs of school and community and their resolve to work toward a solution. It establishes long-range goals and sets an overall tone that will support specific actions. A districtwide policy helps maintain consistency in prevention and intervention efforts and promotes fair, uniform treatment of students at different schools. It guides the development of site-specific procedures and ensures program continuity if a key building administrator should depart. In addition, recent legislation requires schools to possess comprehensive substance-abuse prevention policies and programs in order to be eligible for federal funding.

Extractions: Source: ERIC Clearinghouse on Counseling and Student Services Greensboro NC. Substance Abuse and Counseling: A Perspective. ERIC Digest. Substance abuse is a critical problem in the United States across allsegments of the population and impacts in some way all members ofour society. It is the most prevalent mind disorder, the number onecontinuing health problem, and the number one prison problem in theUnited States (Inaba, Cohen, and Holstein, 1997). The significantnumber of the United States population having substance abuseproblems is indicated by approximately 6% abusing illegal drugs, 12%having problems with drinking, 25% being addicted to nicotine and,conservatively, 10% addicted to prescription medications. All counselors no matter what their specialty or setting willencounter clients with presenting or related problems of substanceabuse. However, counselor education programs and their accreditingbodies do not require knowledge or skill development in this area.Thus, it is critical that we implement strategies to insure that allcounselors in practice and in counselor preparation programsunderstand the process of substa While many models of causation of substance abuse have been proposed, no clear etiology has been identified. Models emphasize morality or individual conscious choice, biological or disease vulnerability, behavioral learning patterns, cultural-environmental concerns, or biopsychosocial impact. The biopsychosocial model views substance abuse as a complex interaction of all of the other models and endorses multiple strategies for counseling from these models as appropriate. Counselors need to review these models to develop a conceptual position regarding causation upon which he/she can make consistent therapeutic assumptions and decisions to guide counseling practice.
Extractions: Welcome to Athealth.com's Professional Interview Series! We are pleased to bring you an interview with Dr. Howard A. Liddle who answers questions about the "state of the science" of adolescent substance abuse research and talks about the practical aspects of assessing and treating adolescent substance abuse. The interview includes a brief clinical vignette that underscores treatment and intervention strategies. Athealth.com Welcome Dr. Liddle. I would like to start by inviting you to talk about the most important recent developments in the area of adolescent substance abuse research and treatment. Dr. Liddle : This is a very important question with historical and contemporary overtones; there are several key issues to consider here. First and foremost, adolescent substance abuse has become a bona fide clinical specialty in its own right, with its own theory, basic and applied research, practice guidelines, and policy studies. Clinical work in the field is grounded in the knowledge of adolescent development. Today's "state of the art" treatments are not step-down adult treatments applied to teens. Rather, they are tailored to the particulars, complexities, and multiple systems that make up the teen's ecology. Additionally, there are many opportunities for research of all kinds through federal funding agencies, foundations, and state and local agencies. The existence of research centers is a testimony to the specialty's evolution. Professional and scientific organizations and many scientific publications focus on the problems, needs, and policies pertaining to adolescence. I believe we are witnessing the beginning of a renaissance period in the history of the adolescent treatment specialty.

S ubstance abuse, defined as the problematic use of alcohol, tobacco, or illicit drugs, has been called the nation's number one health problem. The costs to society are enormous; the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism estimates that alcohol and drug abuse are associated with 100,000 deaths per year and cost society $100 billion per year. See page 1413 for definitions of strength-of-evidence levels. It is thought that approximately 10 percent of American adults have a problem with drugs or alcohol, and an estimated 20 percent of patients seen by family physicians have substance-abuse problems, excluding tobacco use. Patients who abuse alcohol and drugs are much more likely to develop medical problems than the general population.
