Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

This qualitative research study sought to understand the knowledge of school personnel concerning adolescent drug use and the role of OT in school-based drug prevention. Understanding of the role of OT was gathered, and facilitators of and barriers to school-based prevention were identified. Results of this study can be used to increase knowledge of OT among school personnel and articulate OT’s distinct value in school systems, particularly regarding drug-prevention programs.
