Abstract:  This organization is in the process of developing a lifestyles education program for youth at the school and community levels. Lifestyle is defined in five dimensions:

1) Physical - including illnesses, accidents, chronic conditions, alcohol abuse and essential life support systems.
2) Emotional - including mental illness, emotional problems, child development and protection.
3) Intellectual - including mental retardation, educational opportunities and developmental disabilities.
4) Social - including social justice, human rights, housing, ecology, employment, legal equity and recreational and cultural activities.
5) Spiritual - including values, ethics, attitudes and religion.

This organization no longer exists.
This abstract was published in the Connexions Digest in 1980.
COPE lifestyle is now researching and reviewing these lifestyle elements and intends to eventually develop a program of primary prevention of chemical substance abuse. This will be done through program activities such as school programs for youth, family work-shops, youth participation, peer counseling and information campaigns. These will use all "LIFESTYLE" elements and will be directed at the community-at-large.

This organization intends to carry out an extensive resources search and is requesting information from any organization with similar objectives. This group is also interested in obtaining information about agencies which are dealing with the issue of youth in society.
