We can organize Primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention of drug abuse by effectively planning. Using primary prevention techniques early in life such as educating children in elementary and middle school, they can already be informed of the dangers of drug abuse and how to act if they have encountered a foreign substance that can harm their bodies. Primary prevention also would deal with every kids dream of being popular and doing whatever it takes to "look cool" such as peer pressure. Informing children to say no to drugs, the effects of these drugs, and the consequences of long-term use is the most effective strategy in my opinion, to preventing drug abuse.
Secondary prevention, explained by Nelson and Prilleltensky, as not necessarily being prevention, but noticing the issue of drug abuse early and acting right away to hopefully prevent the problem from worsening. I believe proper counseling and even an intervention (with loved ones present). Though this process is not as assertive as Primary prevention, it still seeks to end the problem at once and takes significant measures to prevent a problem such as drug abuse, from getting worse and treating it.
Tertiary prevention is used when a disease or issue has already occurred and the preventative measures used are in place to essentially contain a disease such as HIV/AIDS in countries such as Africa, China, India, Russia and even here in the United States by informing them of the importance of taking their medicine to manage their symptoms and prevent the disease from progressing further than it already has. This preventative measure is important because it not only helps those infected but those who are not.
