3 NTRODUCTON The subject of drug educaton - use and abuse s a prmary concern of educators and lay people throughout the naton. The lterature s replete wth materals coverng the entre spectrum of ths area of concern. Programs of varyng degrees of worth are beng tred naton-wde. Knowledgeable persons, acd those wth questonable knowledge, are avalable, and offer a wde range of servce, and sometmes dsservce. The audo-vsual servces offer many flms and flmstrps rangng from excellent to the medocre, or downrght poor n qualty. All of these servces are avalable but are prolferated to a pont where concerned persons are at a loss as to where they may look for assstance. The purpose of ths bulletn s to dentfy avalable resources relatve to drug educaton, and organze them n a form whch can be quckly used to pnpont a partcular servce whch can be addressed to a partcular need. The compler of the bulletn professes to make no contrbuton to orgnal knowledge. Nether does he clam to have exhausted the resources. A tme lmtaton on the producton of ths document, resultng from a request of potental users that the. work be completed at the earlest possble date, has prevented the use of all materal whch the compler has requested from varous sources throughout the Unted States. A further lmtaton, resultng from a lack of tme and resources, would not allow a thorough search for programs, consultants, et cetera. t should be further ndcated that a document of such a current topc as drug educaton s obsolete as soon as t s publshed, wth the nflux of new data appearng n the lterature. Wth these lmtatons n mnd, t s hoped that the nformaton contaned heren wll be of assstance to those whose efforts are drected toward drug educaton. James M. Lang

AWARENESS HOUSE NC.* P.O. Box 55, Fort Bragg, Calforna H.. the local Awareness House program whch orgnated n Fort Bragg n the Sprng of 968 and has been n operaton therefor, for a year and a half or more. Ths was ntally a program wth school leadershp. But snce the basc phlosophy whch we then, and stll do espouse, s that the problem of drug abuse among young people s not a school problem nor a law enforcement problem, but s a communty problem. The program here n Fort Bragg became a communty program, wth school people stll mantanng leadng roles n ts development....snce July, 969, those of us most closely nvolved wth the development of the local program, have become a tranng project funded through the Mendocno County Superntendent of Schools Offce, and funded by the Bureau of Educaton Personnel Development, Unted States Offce of Educaton, Department of Health, Educaton, and Welfare under NDEA Ttle V, to tran exaddcts to work as drug specalst counselor-ades n schools and communtes and to assst those communtes who wsh to employ our personnel to develop ther own local programs and to develop and dssemnate a natonal model tranng program. *nformaton relatve to Awareness House s quoted from a letter receved from the Drector, Mr. H. Bryce Brooks.

8 2 Snce July, we have asssted the communty of Sonora, Calforna to establsh a program there called n Ste, usng our personnel, and we have opened the Tucson Awareness House n Tucson, Arzona. The fourth Awareness House program wll open at Yuba Cty, Calforna, on February, 97. We have also consulted wth ctzens' groups and school people from a number of other communtes n Calforna, Arzona, Oregon, and Washngton, n an attempt to assst them to develop communty programs. We daly receve requests for assstance by phone, mal, and personal vsts from all over the Unted States. We are assstng the state of Arzona to develop legslaton regardng the control of dangerous drugs and narcotcs, rehabltaton, educatonal and preventon. We have recently acted as consultants to the Offce of the Governor of the State of Calforna n the area of drug abuse plannng. So t s obvous the consultatve servces are avalable. We are lmted n what we can do by the sze of our staff whch conssts of myself, my assocate drector, Wlson Van Dusen, Ph.D., a clncal psychologst, whose functon s research evaluaton and plannng and to the two staff traners that are part of our admnstratve staff. We try to respond to requests for assstance as best we can. We have occasonally provded consultatve servces at no charge and pad our own expenses. Usually, we provde such servces for expenses only. Sometmes we have charged a standard $ a day per person consultatve fee, plus expenses. So, as you can see, we try to be flexble. Our objectve s to be of assstance f we can. am the contact person and the address s shown on the letterhead above. Our phone number s (77) n answerng your queston number four, who may use the servce--agan may have to dvde my answer nto two parts. The local programs, the Awareness programs, that have been establshed and wll be establshed, are desgned to work wth kds, prmarly hgh school and junor hgh school age, though we have had some grammar school and some college age young people nvolved. We are prmarly a preventatve program, workng most effectvely wth the expermenters and young people who have not as yet expermented but who are under peer group pressure to do so. n addton to these, we do work wth hard core drug users, and have had a great deal of success wth young people lvng at home, gong to school n ther communty, but who are usng speed and heron. We offer no lve -n facltes, but are strctly a drop-n center and we provde several knds of actvtes explaned n the enclosed brochure. Our tranng program, on the other hand, trans personnel for school dstrcts and communtes. So far, the personnel that we have graduated have gone to work n communty drug abuse programs. Ths wll probably be the general pattern. Our program has been effectve n Fort Bragg n radcally reducng the ncdence of the use and abuse of llegal and dangerous drugs n our communty. We can already see postve effects n the communtes where programs have recently been establshed. We have no objectve measure of the success, but must rely on the testmony of

9 3 our polce, mnsters, school offcals, parents, and the kds. We hope to be able to develop n the next few months objectve measures whch we can publsh. Snce we have no drect connecton wth Mendocno State Hosptal, there would be no one there who can gve you further nformaton about ths program. Mendocno State Hosptal s at ths tme our prmary source of prospectve tranees. Ths, for the smple reason, that we know of no other program of rehabltaton of addcts that s as successful as the one at Mendocno State Hosptal. There s a smlar program at Napa State Hosptal whch does offer some hope of provdng qualfed tranees. Our grant applcaton, whch was funded by the Bureau of Educaton Personnel Development, was wrtten by Dr. James Mlne, Drector of the North Coast PACE Center n Eureka. All of ths actvty taught us some thngs. A. Drug expermentaton and use had become very wdespread among teenagers and young adults. Ths nvolves such drugs as the extremely dangerous amphetamnes. B. No authortes have any clear deas on the best ways to deal wth the problems. Our deas are as good as anyones. C. Our kds have no real knowledge of the real dangers nherent n ther nvolvement wth drugs, they are unbelevably nave. C. Our kds are more nclned to accept the ex-addcts as authortes on drugs than they are to accept the word of an7 teacher, school admnstrator, parent or mnster. E, The ex-addcts themselves are dedcated to the dea that drugs are dangerous. They can lead to addcton and crme and therefore to jal, nsanty and death. For ths reason they are eager to tell young people how t really s, F. Wth use of drugs, young people feel alenated from parents, school and communty and have developed a great deal of btterness toward ther envronment and towards the authorty fgures n ther lves. Fort Bragg's answer was to hre three graduates of the drug abuse program at Mendocno State Hosptal as Counselor-ades to work under the supervson

10 4 of the school counselors n the schools and n the communty. These three were leaders of the drug abuse program at the State Hospt and had been mportant factors n the success of that program. One of the.,ree has snce left Fort Bragg, but the other two are stll workng here. These people were hred by the school dstrct for the last few weeks of school. Those of us who talked wth the kds soon became aware that many were afrad of summer. They felt that tme would be on ther hands and plenty of dope would be avalable and that they would not be able to resst. t was then decded that a longer term program was necessary and an effort should be made to determne f we had a program whch could contrbute to the soluton of the problem of dope abuse by young people. An applcaton for Federal Funds was made. Funds were needed to contnue the project untl Federal Fundng came through. An Awareness House Auxlary was organzed to admnster funds, and to help explan the program to the communty. The Auxlary has rased about $,7 and has spent most of t n settng up and operatng the program at Awareness House through the summer. Our Awareness House' program nvolves the followng servces:. A number of 'Awareness Groups' meetngs at the house wth Counselorades. These groups consst of both users and non-users. The objectve of the 'Awareness Group' s to mprove communcaton and understandng and to learn to 'turn on' wth people - not drugs. 2. Provdes a place where parents can get help n dealng wth famly drug abuse problems. 3. Provde a referral agency for local physcans and others n cases where drug problems are nvolved. 4. Provde educaton to young people n and out of school and to others regardng drug abuse. The 'Awareness House' program s an expermental one and as far as we know the only one of ts knd any place. t has been actve for too short a tme to prove anythng, but we do know some thngs already:. Young people who have reached the pont that they want help are beng helped. Several who appeared to be hopelessly addcted have not used drugs for several weeks and even months as a result of ths program. 2. We wll never know how many young people who are expermentng wth drugs, or who were thnkng about such drugs or were thnkng about

11 5 such acton, have been turned asde by the publcty and the nformaton provded. 3. The communty has a place to go for help--we are not just sttng here watchng our kds go down the dran. 4. We know we cannot help anyone untl they want help. Apparently they have to hurt themselves before they want help. t s some comfort, however, to know that help s avalable." * * *

DRUG SEMNARS Fresno Communty Councl - DSCUSSON GUDE FOR COMMUNTY-WDE ATTACK ON DRUG ABUSE BY STUDENTS, Sarah McCardle Room, Fresno County Free Lbrary Background n recent months, students n the Fresno Area have become ncreasngly nvolved n the use of habtuatng drugs, ncludng stmulants (amphetamnes), depressants (barbturates), and Hallucnogens (LSD). LC.

17 On March 26, 968, the Fresno Communty Councl called a meetng of law enforcement, school and other personnel to dscuss the problem. Dr. Noel Smth, M.D., the Councl's Famly and Chld Welfare Consultant, presded. Purpose of the meetng was to apprase the extent of the problem, to determne what s presently beng done about t, and to map out a course of acton for the future. Followng ths meetng, dscussons were held wth ndvduals who have professonal background n law enforcement and human relatons to obtan more nformaton about the problem. Several youth who vew the problem from close range partcpated n the dscussons. The objectve was to defne areas of agreement and dsagreement among persons wth specal knowledge about the problem. The areas of agreement were used a 'buldng blocks' n constructng a communty-wde attack on the problem. Areas of Agreement Lsted below are the areas of agreement reached n these dscussons:. Drug Abuse s A Felony. 2. Drug Laws Must Be Strctly Enforced. 3. Drug Abuse s ncreasng. 4. Many Offenders Escape Detecton. 5. Nether Law Enforcement Agences Nor Schools Can Solve Problem Alone. 6. A 'Thrd Agency' s Not The Answer. 7. Parents Must Become More Responsble For the Conduct Of Ther Chldren. 9- A Communty-wde Attack s ndcated. Communty-Wde Attack Based upon the above areas of agreement, the followng components of a communty-wde attack on the problem are presented for consderaton. These were suggested by numerous youth and adults, representng a wde range of lay and professonal ponts of vew, who partcpated n the analyss of the problem and search for solutons: Counsellng Youth and ther parents should be gven an opportunty to dscuss ther problems anonymously wth a person orented on communty resources avalable to assst n ths problem area. By ths procedure t may be possble to reach some youth who do not come to the attenton of law enforcement authortes at present. f parents are not aware of the youth's nvolvement, every effort should be made to notfy them, preferably wth the consent of the youth. Parents should be strongly urged to notfy law enforcement authortes by explanng to them what ths notfcaton nvolves, and why t s mportant to them and to others. A program smlar to Alcoholcs Anonymous (by prevous addcts) or Drop-Outs Anonymous (by ctzens) may well serve ths puzpose.

18 2 Coordnaton Formal plans should be made to enable physcans, educators, mnsters, attorneys, law enforcement personnel, and others to exchange nformaton and to coordnate ther efforts. One of the objectves should be to mprove the mage of law enforcement agences n order to reduce the reluctance to counsel wth them. Responsblty for ths coordnaton should be assgned to one partcular admnstratve unt, to be determned by the County Admnstratve Offce. Publc and Parent nformaton The general publc should be nformed about the legal, medcal and socologcal mplcatons of drug use, abuse and addcton, as well as on the procedure and mportance of law enforcement.
