Author: Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction
Examines North American youth sport programs that contain substance use education to determine if these programs can prevent, delay or reduce youth substance use. This environmental scan notes that early findings suggest prevention efforts that include peer-to-peer administration, alternatives to negative behaviours, personalized feedback and social norming have shown positive results. The report also includes recommendations for developing sport-based drug use prevention programs.
