Event Details

Course Description: This seminar is the outgrowth of a two-year project to identify promising and effective adolescent substance abuse prevention and treatment programs. Drawing from the chapters these respected scholars wrote for the book Adolescent Substance Abuse Prevention: Evidence-Based Approaches to Prevention and Treatment, attendees will be presented with a social-historical overview of humanity's need for mind altering substances with special attention given to the "stepping stone" theory of addiction. Next, the biological/genetic need for mind-altering drugs is examined. This is followed by an overview of primary prevention. Lastly, promising interventions are examined.



Dr. Carl Leukefeld is Professor of Behavioral Science, Psychiatry, Oral Health Science and Social Work; and Chair of the Department of Behavioral Science and Director of the Center on Drug and Alcohol Research, with a graduate appointment in Sociology.

Dr. Catherine Martin is a Professor and Vice Chair for Research and E.A. Edwards professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Kentucky.  She currently has NIH funding for research in medications for nicotine use and ADHD.  She is also investigating individual differences in drug effects of drug abuse.
