Traduction en anglais : Secondary prevention : An approach to improve the german drug prevention system.
Drug prevention in Germany traditionally focusses on primary prevention programmes for children without any drug experience.
Only a few programmes have been specifically developed for drug-taking youth, although especially children and adolescents at high risk for drug problems need intervention services which provide helpfulsupport to reduce drug misuse.
Empirical studies in two German cities show that prevention services are not available for the high-risk population of drug-taking youth.
On an international level several projects are testing out new approaches for drug use prevention for at-risk youth.
The primary goal of such secondary prevention programmes is to reduce the incidence and prevalence of drug use and abuse through early detection and intervention strategies.
These programmes aim at preventing adolescents who are experimenting with drugs from progressing to misuse or addiction.
Testing new prevention strategies to support drug-taking youth in Germany is likely to produce a valuable contribution to our knowledge of effective drug prevention.
