  1. Drug abuse prevention for high-risk African American children and their families: a review and model program.

    Article - En anglais

    In this article we are specifically concerned with the familial and socioeconomic factors that contribute to the exceedingly high prevalence rates of drug abuse in African-American children.

    In addition to detailing the impact of drug abuse in African-American children and their families, we consider how this critical health problem can be prevented using existing knowledge and strategies known to mental health professionals.

    A model program entitled Project for a Substance Abuse-Free Environment (SAFE) is outlined.

    Its objectives are to implement:

    (a) a broad-spectrum family intervention to empower disadvantaged and high-risk families in their communities.
