Drunk
driving is one of the largest social problems related to alcohol use. Driving
under the influence (DUI) of alcohol is involved in 40–45% of all fatal traffic
accidents. As a result, legislators, educators, and law enforcement officers
are continually attempting to find ways to prevent driving under the influence
of alcohol.

Select
one of the following age groups: teens (13–17 years), college-age (18–25
years), adults (26–60 years), or seniors (61 years and up).

For
your selected age group, develop a plan to reduce driving under the influence.
The plan could include (but not be limited to) educational, legislative, and
community support; and social advertising. Present at least three action
points in your plan. Be sure to include:

  • The format of the plan
  • Who will deliver the
    information and how
  • Specific tactics used to
    target the selected group
  • Methods used to measure
    the success of the plan

Be
sure to include an introduction and summary for your plan. Support your
recommendations using authoritative sources.

Write
a 2–3-page plan in Word format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources

Treatment programs cannot always be 100% effective, and many
substance abusers relapse into drug abuse after days, months, or even years of
sobriety. With the marginal success of treatment programs, it is even more
important that people never start using drugs. As such, prevention strategies
are of utmost importance.

CASE STUDY:

Aaliyah had been taking amphetamines regularly for two
months and had been experiencing the physiological, psychological, and toxic
effects of chronic amphetamine use.  She had
started drinking alcohol to help her sleep at night.

One morning she was driving to work and feeling the effects
of a hangover from the night before.  She
was not concentrating on the road, and ran into the back of a car that has
stopped in front of her.  Luckily, none
of the people involved were seriously injured.

This incident served as a “wake up call” for Aaliyah, and
she decided to get help for her problems. 
However, because she is now using both amphetamines and alcohol, she is
not sure which treatment program to enter into.

Aaliyah would like the help of other people to avoid the
troubles caused by drugs.  She would like
to give a presentation at her college to discuss her experiences and give
student several prevention options, as well as ways to tell if their friends or
loved ones have a drug problem.

Develop
a PowerPoint presentation including the following:

  • Identify and describe
    two prevention strategies.
  • Explain ways of
    determining whether loved ones have a problem with drugs using the current
    DSM characteristics of substance use disorders.
  • Address the
    effectiveness of current treatment strategies in the United States.
  • Explain polypharmacology
  • Address the possible
    treatment options and treatment difficulties for someone who is dependent
    on two substances.

Develop
an 8–10-slide presentation (complete with speaker notes) in PowerPoint format.
Apply APA standards to citation of sources. Be sure to include a title slide
and a list of references
