NIDA Prevention Principles, According to the NIDA, “Prevention programs aimed at general populations at key transition points, such as the transition to middle school, can produce beneficial effects even among high-risk families and children” (National Institute on Drug Abuse, 2003, p. 4). Also Identifying these key transition points is important as you develop programs for your local community. Can you think of a time when a prevention program may reach students before they engage in dangerous behaviors? Perhaps before prom? Or graduation?
For this Assignment, review the media in this week’s Learning Resources. Then, consider the NIDA prevention you examined. Base-d on these resources, determine which of the NIDA prevention guidelines were addresse-d and how they “enhance-d protective factors and reverse-d or reduce-d risk factors” (NIDA standards, 2003, p. 2).
Consider the excerpts from Preventing Drug Use Among Children and Adolescents: A Research-Based Guide for Parents, Educators, and Community Leaders.
Explain how the NIDA prevention were used by Mike Gimble in this week’s media. Be specific, and provide examples from the media piece to support your answers.
