This catalog has been created by WYSAC to assist Community Prevention Professionals in selecting environmental prevention strategies targeting alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. Each strategy entry includes a strategy, description, discussion of effectiveness, and an easy-to-read composite indicator specifying the level of effectiveness and strength of the evidence based on available literature. Each entry also indicates the target substance(s) for each strategy, a list of other names or examples of the strategy, and a table that denotes the causal domain and/or CDC tobacco goal pertaining to each strategy.
Finally, this tool presents information current at the time of publication, but research on prevention continues to be published. Similarly, prevention strategies change and evolve. WYSAC researchers hope to update the catalog as new research on environmental prevention strategies for alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use becomes available, and to reflect changes in prevention work conducted in our state.
