Coaches Guide to Drugs and Sport
Coaches Guide to Drugs and Sport describes practical steps that will help coaches tackle the problems of tobacco, alcohol, and other drug use among their athletes.
Drawing on decades of work in drug education and prevention, authors Kevin R. Ringhofer and Martha E. Harding explain how coaches can become effective advocates for prevention in their schools and communities. They also provide useful advice and corrective measures for coaches who suspect an existing drug problem on their team.
Coaches Guide to Drugs and Sport also helps coaches identify school and community resources they can use to prevent problems, respond to troubled students, and promote healthy lifestyles. The book provides practical information on using student assistance programs, planning educational sessions, and determining whether to implement a drug-testing program. The book also contains a listing of educational resources and a reference guide to common drugs.
