Objective: To research effective drug prevention strategies for school-aged populations from drug prevention programs funded by the USDHHS Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP). Method: Nine directors and staff members from model CSAP-funded programs were interviewed. Results: Fifteen strategies that focus on building trusted relationships, selecting well-qualified staff using existing communication networks, and providing timely evaluation feedback are discussed, with examples from the agencies cited. Conclusion: Formulating effective partnerships that support both the goals of the outside agency with drug prevention resources and the mission of a school can contribute toward effective school-based drug prevention programs.
