Safety First: A Reality-Based Approach to Teens, Drugs and Drug Education, a booklet written by Dr. Marsha Rosenbaum and published by The Lindesmith Center, will be released at the October 29 conference, "Just Say Know: New Directions in Drug Education," in San Francisco.

Rosenbaum, director of The Lindesmith Center-West, is a widely published expert on drug abuse. She is also the mother of a teen-aged son, and wrote Safety First for other parents as well as teachers and administrators. The 20-page pamphlet analyzes the current status of drug education and includes recommendations about how it could be improved. Also included is an open letter Rosenbaum wrote to her son about drugs, published last year in the San Francisco Chronicle.

The pamphlet can be found on the Lindesmith Center website at http://www.lindesmith.org/library/safetyfirst.pdf. Included on the site is a list of reality-based drug education programs from around the world. Program providers may forward their information to [email protected].
