UNIVERSAL ENVIRONMENTAL SUBSTANCE ABUSE PREVENTION STRATEGIES
Great, but what does that mean?
'Universal' means that everyone receives the same access to information, regardless of risk factors.
'Environmental' means that the strategies are meant to either create a social norm in which substance misuse/abuse is not viewed favorably, or to change a social norm where it is viewed as "no big deal".
