Center for Substance Abuse Prevention

CENTER FOR SUBSTANCE ABUSE PREVENTION

The Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) is the U.S. agency responsible for the prevention of alcohol, tobacco, and illicit drug problems in the U.S. population. Because such problems are intrinsically linked with other public health problems, CSAP partners with public and private sector organizations, including other federal agencies, state agencies, professional organizations, and business and health care organizations. CSAP develops comprehensive, culturally appropriate, science-based prevention strategies, policies, and systems that target both individuals and the environments in which they live. The National Clearinghouse for Alcohol and Drug Information (NCADI), established by CSAP, has become the nation's largest disseminator of knowledge about prevention and treatment of alcohol and drug problems.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
