Parent drug education programs: Reasons, problems and implications
Fox, Tricia A. (1991) Parent drug education programs: Reasons, problems and implications. Canadian Journal of Counselling, 25(1), pp. 50-55.
The prevalence of drugs in society has led many parents to seek assistance from parent drug education programs. However, because of environmental influences, and parental characteristics and needs, drug education programs specifically aimed at parents may not be effective in assisting them to cope with drug problems within their families. This paper presents an overview of parent drug education programs together with information regarding those problems, concerns and needs faced by parents who are dealing with an offspring drug user/abuser. The presentation emphasizes the unique, individual characteristics of parent drug education programs. The influence of parental characteristics on parent drug education programs warrants more research.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
