Scope and Content

This artificially created collection contains research reports, information guides, and Los Angeles County and California state program proposals for drug and alcohol abuse prevention that were acquired by the Social Work Library of USC's School of Social Work. The holdings span the years 1952 to 1973, a time when drug abuse increased in California and the United States as a whole. Thus, this collection affords sources on how the problem was dealt with as it increased in scope during this period. No specific order, eg, topic, exists for this collection, and the inventory is alphabetized for easier consultation of the collection’s contents on drug and alcohol abuse prevention.
