For the Public

Prevention

The American Society of Addiction Medicine supports a wide variety of measures to prevent alcohol- and other drug-related problems in contemporary society, understanding that carefully thought out prevention measures have demonstrably reduced the early onset of alcohol, nicotine, and other drug use and addiction in some populations and contributed to a reduction in deaths and serious injury resulting from drug-related illnesses and accidents.
