Content By: Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA): Substance Misuse Prevention for Young Adults. Publication No. PEP19-PL-Guide-1 Rockville, MD: National Mental Health and Substance Use Policy Laboratory. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, 2019.

Course Description:  According to the 2018 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, over a third of young adults aged 18-25 engaged in binge drinking in the last month, and slightly over 38% used illicit drugs within the last year. When compared to other age groups, young adults have some of the highest levels of alcohol and substance misuse. This course uses a social-ecological perspective to illustrate the variety of developmental and contextual factors that place a young adult at risk for substance misuse. Identifying risk factors, as well as examining factors that prevent misuse, serves as the foundation for the development of evidence-based prevention practices and programs. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)’s evidence-based prevention practices reviewed in this course targets universal, selected, and indicated populations at risk for substance misuse or substance use disorder.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the prevalence, patterns, and trends of substance misuse among young adults.
  2. List the developmental and contextual factors that place young adults at risk for substance misuse.
  3. Identify protective factors that serve to mitigate substance misuse for young adults.
  4. Recognize vulnerable population groups at risk for substance misuse, as well as those at risk for developing Substance Use Disorder.
  5. Differentiate between evidence-based programs implemented in childhood and adolescence and those designed for young adults.
  6. Discuss how the steps of the Strategic Prevention Framework can be used as a guide for the implementation of evidence-based programs and practices.
