As you have learned, and probably know, many people abuse different substances. There are quite a number of programs that seek to help those who struggle with substance abuse.
Select one of the following topics:
- Alcohol abuse
- Tobacco abuse
- Substance abuse
Upon selecting your topic, begin researching how community/public health programs in your community (city, county, or state) can help decrease the number of people using alcohol, tobacco, or other substances. Select a program, and describe the following:
- the program you have selected,
- the abuse issue (alcohol, tobacco, or other substance abuse) the program is striving to combat, and
- your analysis of the program’s successfulness.
Be sure to use descriptive epidemiology to discuss why it is a community health concern.
