About the Author

Edited by Helene Raskin White, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, USA, and David L. Rabiner, Duke University, North Carolina, USA


"This is an important contribution for professionals who work in the college or university milieu, as well as instructors who teach courses on substance abuse. The book presents up-to-date information and current best practices. While it is well recognized that college students are at risk for substance use problems, the difficulties around prevention are legion. 'Lecturing at' college students is only marginally effective, but this book describes interventions that work! By introducing the concept that colleges and universities would benefit greatly by creating recovering communities, the book beckons the reader to the future of college-level substance use programming and opens up a whole new topic for pedagogy." - Joy G. Willmott, Case Western Reserve University, Ohio, USA "A 'must-have' for every practitioner, administrator, or policy maker committed to reducing problems associated with college drinking and drug use, this essential resource guides college and university professionals to effectively bring theory to practice. Comprehensively reviewing the latest scientific research in the field, the book focuses on ways to change both college drinking culture and individuals' high-risk behaviors." - Diane Fedorchak, Center for Health Promotion, University of Massachusetts Amherst, USA
