Prevention
The objective of primary prevention is to protect the individual in order to avoid problems prior to signs or symptoms of problems. It also includes those activities, programs, and practices that operate on a fundamentally non-personal basis and to alter the set of opportunities, risks, and expectations surrounding individuals. Secondary prevention identifies persons in the early stages of problem behaviors associated with alcohol and other drugs and attempts to avert the ensuing negative consequences by inducing them to cease their use through counseling or treatment. It is often referred to as early intervention. Tertiary prevention strives to end compulsive use of alcohol or other drugs an/or to ameliorate their negative effects through treatment and rehabilitation. This is most often referred to as treatment but also includes rehabilitation and relapse prevention.

Prevention Approaches
There are three main methods of prevention service delivery: Universal, Targeted and Indicated. Universal: Addresses the entire population with messages and programs aimed at preventing or delaying problem behaviors. Targeted: Selecting subsets of the total population that are assessed as at risk for problem behaviors by virtue of their membership to a particular population segment. Indicated: Identify individuals who are exhibiting early signs of problem behavior(s) and target them with special programs to prevent further onset of difficulties.
