  1. Evaluation of a peer-led drug abuse risk education project for runaway/homeless youghts.

    Article - En anglais

    The purpose of this study was to evaluate the Drug Prevention in Youth risk reduction program that was implemented in shelters for runaway/homeless youths in the Southeastern United States.

    The program focuses on knowledge, attitudes and skills that can help this group of high risk young people minimize the serious negative consequences of drug abuse.

    An evaluation strategy was developed so comparisons could be made between peer-led, adult-led and non-intervention groups.

    Dependent samples t tests and least squares ANCOVAS were used to measure pretest-posttest differences both within and between groups.

    Results indicate that the peer-led groups were more successful than the other two groups, and that program effects were the most powerful with the youngest group of shelter clients.

    Process evaluation revealed important factors related to group leader training and group management.

    It is concluded that well-trained and motivated peer/near peer leaders have particularly valuable contributions to make with regard to drug abuse risk reduction for shelter clients.
