The Parent’s Movement: An American Grassroots Phenomenon

  • Carol Marcus

Abstract

A remarkable and unusual social movement in the area of drug abuse prevention has arisen in the United States over the past three years. Since 1977, parents in unprecedented numbers across the country have been organizing neighborhood parent groups for drug-free youth. This movement, a truly grassroots nonprofessional effort, has begun to have significant impact on the drug abuse field.
