SAPRP has launched the Knowledge Asset feature of our website to provide the latest research and the policy implications of that research on alcohol, tobacco and drug use. Each Knowledge Asset includes a downloadable Policy Brief, a summary of key research results, details of studies used in building the asset, names of SAPRP researchers, and other resources that will be useful for policy makers and the media.
