Environmental Management: An Approach to Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention

Provides alcohol and other drug (AOD) prevention staff and administrators with a quick introduction to the Center's environmental management approach to AOD prevention. It describes five primary strategies for achieving environmental change, each designed to address a problem area that contributes to AOD use in a typical campus environment. The strategies are (1) offer alcohol-free social, extracurricular, and public service options; (2) create a health-promoting normative environment; (3) restrict the marketing and promotion of alcoholic beverages both on and off campus; (4) limit alcohol availability; and (5) increase enforcement of laws and policies.
