    Objectives

    This study investigated the secondary prevention effects of a substance abuse primary prevention program.

    Logistic regression analyses were conducted on 4 waves of follow-up data from sixth-and seventh-grade baseline users of cigarettes, alcohol, and marijuana taking part in a school-based program in Indianapolis.

    Results

    The program demonstraded significant reductions in cigarette use at the initial follow-up (6 months) and alcohol use at the first 2 follow-ups (up to 1.5 years).

    Models considering repeated measures also showed effects on all 3 substances.

    Conclusions

    Primary prevention programs are able to reach and influence high-risk adolescents in a nonstigmatizing manner.
