CADCA Primer - The Coalition Impact: Environmental Prevention Strategies
This publication provides an overview of the environmental strategies approach to community problem-solving. It includes real examples of efforts where environmental strategies aimed at preventing and reducing community problems related to alcohol and other drugs were implemented.
