About the Course:

The National Institute on Drug Abuse focuses on risks for drug abuse and other problem behaviors that occur throughout a child’s development. Prevention interventions designed and tested to address risks can help children at every step along their developmental path. Research funded by NIDA and other organizations shows that early intervention can prevent many adolescent risk behaviors. This course covers Chapter 4 of this research-based guide. The document covers pages 26-35 or on Adobe PDF pages 33-42.
