The Lindesmith Center has
recently published Safety First: A Reality-Based Approach to Teens,
Drugs, and Drug Education, by Marsha Rosenbaum. In this 17-page pamphlet,
Dr. Rosenbaum, medical sociologist, parent, and director of the Lindesmith
Center's west coast office, critiques school-based drug education.
She suggests an approach which focuses on safety and is grounded in the
reality of teenage life today.
If you would like to receive
a complimentary copy, please contact the Lindesmith Center-West at [email protected]
