Awareness and educational efforts are working to help prevent anabolic steroid abuse in schools and communities. The Adolescents Training and Learning to Avoid Steroids (ATLAS) and the Athletes Targeting Healthy Exercise and Nutrition Alternatives (ATHENA) programs, funded by the NIDA, and supported by the Oregon Health & Science University programs is teaching athletes that they do not need steroids to build powerful muscles and improve athletic performance. These programs provide weight-training and nutrition alternatives, increase healthy behaviors, less likelihood to try steroids, and less likelihood to engage in other dangerous behaviors such as drinking and driving, use of marijuana and alcohol , and and improved body image. Bother Congress and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration endorsed these model prevention programs. 4

Early on when taking these drugs (hormones), you can simplistically think of the medication as "supplementing" your body's own production of corticosteroids. With time, your body realizes you are getting all of the corticosteroids you need in pill or intravenous form, and your body sends a message to stop producing your own natural corticosteroids. If these drugs are suddenly stopped, you not only are not getting the prescription, but it can take a significant amount of time before your body realizes that it needs to make its own corticosteroids again.
