    In this report, the Trust for America's Health (TFAH) examines how to help move towards a strong prevention-oriented, continuum-of-care approach to substance misuse -- looking at policies and programs that have a high impact for improving the well-being of America's youth. Section 1 reviews 10 examples of important policy indicators or programs that states may have in place that can have an impact on the well-being of children and youth and/or have been connected with preventing and reducing youth substance misuse. The indicators reflect a range of types of policies that support a prevention-intervention-treatment approach -- from supporting healthier schools and communities to limiting access to substances to providing positive support and treatment. Section 2 featuers recommendations for modernizing the nation's strategy for addressing youth substance misuse by imprementing a research-based public health approach.
