Abstract

The community is the "new frontier" for alcohol and other drug prevention. New prevention initiatives at the community level suggest that effective strategies will often be quite different from national or state policies andwill require a different perspective. Alcohol and other drug use is part of routine community life and must be considered in the context of the community, which is itself a dynamic and self-adapting system. To develop effective community-level interventions, prevention planners and policy makers must understand how various aspects of the community influence alcohol and other drug use and even contribute to alcohol and other drug problems. This paper outlines the basis for a systems approach to community prevention and the policy option that this approach suggests. It also examines the new science of complexity, differentiates between catchment and a systems approachto prevention, describes a public health model within a systems approach, and describes using a local policy as a means to produce systems changes aswell as recent findings from community-based prevention efforts that employed local alcohol policies.
