Abstract

Androgenic-anabolic steroids (AAS), and similar “body image” drugs, continue to receive popular media coverage. Aside from sport, the use of AAS in mainstream society has become popular for aesthetic purposes, particularly among adolescents and young adults. This article will provide the practicing strength and conditioning and health professional with insight and effective strategies for addressing AAS and other performance-enhancing drug use in adolescents and young adults. The transtheoretical model is used as a framework for devising specific strategies to address this growing public health issue.
