Preventing methamphetamine use...

•    Effective prevention begins with an assessment of the specific nature of the drug problem within the local community and adapting the program accordingly. This could be assessed by looking at variety of indicators including drug treatment and emergency room admissions.
•    In general, prevention programs should start early, be comprehensive, and repetitively stress key points.


•    Family-focused prevention efforts have been found to have a greater impact than strategies that focus on parents only or children/adolescents only.
•    The general prevention principles established in NIDA's research-based booklet entitled "Preventing Drug Use Among Children and Adolescents" hold for all drugs of abuse, including methamphetamine and serve as a good starting point for establishing programs in your community.
