Drug Prevention Library

The Drug Prevention Network web portal serves as a clearing house for the exchange of information related to drug policy issues such as drug legalization, harm reduction, drug use impact, drug abuse prevention, and the war on drugs. The site provides links to websites of a variety of prevention resources, copies of downloadable brochures, presentations, and technical papers.

DPNA members are encouraged to utilize the resources other prevention programs have provided as well as to contribute information to the site.

If you are interested in contributing to the portal, please forward your contributions to the DPNA Education Committee at  suhm@tca.net
