The Effectiveness of Selected Deterrents to Substance Abuse by Division III Athletes

The researchers in this study sought to determine the effectiveness of selected deterrents to substance abuse by Division III athletes. A survey was developed that included a list of selected deterrents to drug abuse by NCAA Division III Athletes. Based on a five point Likert-scale, coaches from an NCAA Division III athletic department were asked to indicate the extent to which they agreed or disagreed with the effectiveness of selected substance abuse deterrents in stopping substance use by Division III athletes. The survey included but was not limited to the following supplement abuse deterrents: random testing, counseling, education, suspensions, expulsion, and zero tolerance for first time offenders.
