Description of Practice
Alcohol websites and party helpers are just the start of what you find when you log on. There is a “whole new world” of concerns for prevention advocates and law enforcement alike. Tales of use and abuse often with colorful pics and narratives are floating through cyberspace. The workshop looks at new trends and helps explore how to use the web as a prevention and enforcement tool.
Success or Improvements

Evaluation of the Practice
Participant surveys have found the presentation to be useful.
This workshop was accepted and presented at a recent national leadership conference (OJJDP) and recruited for a panel discussion for the all conference attendees in a plenary session.
