The federal government, has joined various associations and committees to implement specific measures in the prevention of adolescent steroid abuse. The Anabolic Steroid Prevention for Teen Athletes (ATLAS) is a program that provides male, high school athlete, steroid users with peer counseling, factual information and healthy alternatives. ATLAS received the ‘Model Program Award’ from the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention in 2000, and the ‘Exemplary Award from Safe and Drug Free Schools’ in 2001. Surveys have reported a positive impact by ATLAS in the areas of drunk driving, and illicit drug use. Students who participate in the ATLAS program report higher self-esteem, better self-confidence, and greater awareness after completing the program. In 1999 ‘Athletes Targeting Healthy Exercise and Nutrition Alternatives’ (ATHENA) was designed to reduce both the use of drugs and eating disorders in teenage girls.
