Abstract

The increase in drug abuse in the 1960s prompted the establishment of numerous telephone hotlines and drop-in crisis centers. As the number of acute drug crises has abated, such facilities are expanding their services to deal with other problems of youth. In Chapel Hill, North Carolina, the drug-crisis center has evolved into a multiservice center, and its spansors have also established two other programs, a residential center for heroin addicts and a foster home for runaways. Peer counselors in the facilities have proved valuable in helping disturbed youths.
