Substance abuse has been identified as a significant problem among adolescents. Personal and social coping skills training programs implemented in school settings have shown evidence of effectiveness as a primary prevention approach. Early intervention programs for students most at risk are also needed, however, few have been adequately evaluated. Special services providers possess training and skills that are well suited for planning and implementing school-based programs that address the substance abuse issue.
