This report is addressed to drug prevention officers, health educators, health managers and policy makers as a guide to setting up drug prevention programmes adapted to their own particular situations. Its aims is to give an overview of strategies, processed methodologies, guidelines in drug prevention and drug education along with examples of programmes.

The premise is that preventive education against drug abuse can only be effective if it is considered as an activity, as asocial process, and is arried out in a planned and systematic way. The goal of prevention must be set in terms of what is realistic both for the individual and for society at large, and in terms of possibilities offered by environmental context and lifestyles. In other words, a good, carefully prepared prevention programme with clearly formulated and attainable goals, selected techniques and realistic planning will contribute to rendering education effective.
