CAMP - ElementsContact Hours: 1 – 6

Much of prevention is focused on individual attitudes, beliefs, behaviors and skills. Yet individuals do not make their choices in a vacuum. This training explores the environmental influences on individual alcohol and drug use choices, such as community norms, access and availability, media messages, and policy and enforcement.
