The discussion for this week will focus on predictors of adolescent drug and alcohol use and how Student Assistance Programs can be effective for addressing these issues. Identify common influences or predictors of adolescent drug and alcohol use indicated by the research presented in textbook and other resources. Use the internet to find at least one other academic resource on this topic. List and describe 2 family-related, 2 peer-related, and 2 individual characteristics/variables that have been shown to influence drug and alcohol use in adolescence. Based on this information, if you were asked to write a Student Assistance Program (for any age group you choose), what would the framework look like? How would you advocate for the support of the program from school officials, parents, the community, and other interested parties? How would you implement the program and evaluate its effectiveness?
